The drug reps circled in the lobby like blood-sniffing sharks as we sat down at our OB/GYN office. In the seat right behind me, a conversation was already in progress as a white-haired lady loudly lectured a middle-aged man who might have been her son. “I firmly believe, Dan, that good begets good. When you are good and kind to others, when you are a good person, then good things will happen to you! I’ve seen this to be true, Dan. This is how life works.”
If I weren’t such a gentleman, I might have lept up to exorcise her demons or maybe clubbed her with the book of Job. Or at least delivered a firm, “Get behind me!”. But she already was behind me.
