It's not my problem - or is it?

I have the moderator of another web link (Chef Apprentice of PC4Men) to thank for this story:

A little mouse living on a farm was looking through a crack in the
wall one day and saw the farmer and his wife opening a package. The mouse
was intrigued by what food the package may contain. He was aghast to
discover that it was a mousetrap. The mouse ran to the farmyard warning
everyone "there is a mouse trap in the house, there is a mouse trap in
the house."

The chicken raised his head and said "Mr. Mouse, I can tell you this
trap is a grave concern to you, but it has no consequence to me and I
cannot be bothered with it."

The mouse turned to the pig "I am so very sorry Mr. Mouse, but the
trap is no concern of mine either!" The mouse then turned to the bull;
"sounds like you have a problem Mr. Mouse, but not one that concerns me."

The mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected that no one
would help him or was concerned about his dilemma. He knew he had to
face the trap on his own. That night the sound of a trap catching its prey was heard throughout the house.

The farmer's wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness she could not
see that it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught. The
snake bit the farmer's wife. The wife caught a bad fever and the farmer
knew the best way to treat a fever was with chicken soup.

The farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard to get the soup's main

The wife got sicker and friends and neighbors came by to take turns
sitting with her round the clock. The farmer knew he had to feed them, so
he butchered the pig.

The farmer wife did not get better, in fact she died and so many
friends and family came to her funeral that the farmer had to slaughter the
bull to feed all of them.

So the next time we hear that one of our recruits or other consultants, whether hospitatility or web-sister or brother or who ever, is facing a problem and we think it does not concern or effect us, let us remember that when anyone of us is in trouble, we are all at risk.

We at Chef Success already know this but I thought it was a fun story!!
