Smartness has its own ways of getting things done. There is seldom a thing that a smart person cannot accomplish using his smartness. All it takes is a smart plan, and things automatically get done with little or no effort from your side. A smart person is more productive and result oriented than a dumb or not-so-smart person who toils day and night to achieve something. This is a story to show how smartness pays.
This is the story of Ron, a smart elderly man living in the suburbs of Florida, who totally nailed it in getting some troublesome teenage ladies out of his pond. Ron owns a large farm, with a big pond in the back yard of the estate. The pond is large enough to be a perfect place for swimming, with proper set landscape, complete with picnic tables, horseshoe pits, and citrus trees. It is a private property that Ron has taken good care of over the years.
On one of those pleasant summer evenings, Ron decided to go down and check on the swimming hole, because he hadn’t been to that property in a while. Loaded with a five-gallon bucket with the intention of fetching himself some fruits, he headed off towards the pond, when suddenly voices shouting and laughing his glee caught his interest. Coming closer to the pond, he noticed that there was a group of girls skinny-dipping in his pond.
Ron made the girls aware of his presence, to which they reacted by going to the deep end of the pond. One women even shouted to him that they were not coming out until he left.
This irked the property owner and he decided to teach them a lesson. Maintaining a composed posture, and clearing his throat, Ron announced-
“I didn’t come down here to watch you ladies swim naked.”
“I’m here to feed the alligator.”
