PROMPT WORD: HANDLE
There once was a trucker named Lewis who adopted the CB radio handle ‘The Truth’.
He had dropped out of college to pursue the lucrative trucking profession, partly to annoy his bourgeoisie parents, and partly, to avoid the mounting overwhelming debt he perceived on the horizon.
Lewis had embraced the short collegiate tutoring he’d been exposed to, though, and believed that everyone who never attended university, was stupid, so he felt assured to be the ‘best’ because of his superior intellect.
His blue collar instructors found him an infuriating challenge, during training, primarily because of his arrogant attitude and condescension, so his chosen handle was just an extension of Lewis’ know-it-all persona.
Well, Lewis made many costly mistakes and was considered a liability at his first two jobs where he was ‘let go’ swiftly due to his pigheadedness!
Presenting himself as an ‘expert driver’, on his third job application, made the skeptical employer research his references and the responses were identical, “The Truth? You can’t handle The Truth!”.
