Your Funny/Strange/Interesting/Random Story Thread
« on: January 22, 2017, 04:32:10 PM »
This thread is for funny/strange/interesting/random stories that either happened to you or that you witnessed.
(I did not see such a thread so I figured I'll go ahead and start it.)

Here's mine: I was in the hospital in a jam-packed(!) elevator around lunch-break time. There was barely an inch to move and the doors were about to close. As usual, there's always this guy running over at the last second to activate the doors' sensors that it should open back up to let him in, so he shouldn't have to wait for next round. Well, in my case this guy was evidently rolling in dough with a nicely pressed suit etc... He came running with his small box of pizza in his hand and that was the only thing that actually made it into the elevator! ...uh, almost... It got squished from the closing doors. People from the elevator helped activate the sensors to have the doors open back up, but needless to say, the demolished pizza wasn't saved...  :o

How Can You "SM_LE"
Without *"I"* ?

How Can You Be "F_NE"
Without *"I"* ?

How Can You "W_SH"
Without *"I"* ?

How Can You Be "N_CE"
Without *"I"* ?

How Can You Be "FR_END"
Without *"I"* ?

*"I"* Am Very Important!

But This *"I"* Can Never Achieve "S_CCESS" nor Can "LA_GH" Without all of *"U"* ......
And

That Makes *"U"* More Important Than *"I"*..

Why does a thread have to be renamed just because someone hijacked it?  :o

Just imagine mods would rename every thread mesh hijacks to that topic... DDF would have a whole different look...  :-X

Interesting story told of last week by Rav Yisroel Reisman, which I saw thanks to @Yehudaa , I'm reposting it here from the emailed weekly sheets:

Quote
A Story with the Nod’e B’yehuda and the lesson therein.

I want to tell you a beautiful Nod’e B’yehuda story. It is very similar to Shlomo Hamelech where he used great wisdom to decide a Shaila. I am mentioning it not just for the story but for the lesson of the story. Once upon a time there was a wealthy man who traveled with a wagon driver from city A to city B. As they were driving through the forest, the wagon driver pulls over to the side, pulls out a knife and he tells his wealthy passenger take off your clothing, we are going to change clothing or I will kill you. He says what are you talking about?

He says look, I am a wagon driver and no one respects me, I have no money. You be the wagon driver. I am putting on your clothing, I am taking the goods you have, the money you have and we are coming to the other town and I am you and you are me. The wealthy man had no choice and he changed his clothing with the wagon driver and he starts driving the wagon.
As soon as they come in to town they drive straight to the Beis Din. He goes running in and says my wagon driver look what he did. He switched clothing with me, he pulled out a knife. The wagon driver who was now the “wealthy man” said what is he talking about, he is nuts. They argue.

The Bais Din says go to the Nod’e B’yehuda who is the Rav in town and go to him for a Psak. The Nod’e B’yehuda hears the Shaila, he says it is late in the evening, be here tomorrow morning early at 7 AM. I have a busy day tomorrow. Make sure you are in the waiting room by my office at 7 in the morning. They wake up early to Daven and to eat breakfast and they appear at 7 in the morning and the Nod’e B’yehuda is inside learning and says wait I have a Seder before Davening, wait. They are waiting from 7 until 8. At 8 the Nod’e B’yehuda says I need a few minutes as I am going downstairs to Daven, just wait. The Nod’e B’yehuda of course Davens more than a few minutes so when he comes up it is 9 – 9:15 or whatever it is and he comes up and they are waiting there in the waiting room. He says okay good. I appreciate that you are here and I will see you shortly.
 
He goes in and he has his morning Chavrusos and they are just sitting there, hungry and tired and just waiting for him. The day goes by with one thing or another. Don’t leave, in a few minutes I will see you. He Shleps them a whole day and they are furious. Finally they are sitting there maybe 10 hours – 11 hours and the Nod’e B’yehuda is going to Mincha, they are hungry and tired and they are both furious. What kind of behavior is this from the Nod’e B’yehuda. If you can’t see me until the afternoon why do you tell me to come in the morning? They are both upset.

As they are sitting there angrily and it is already 8 or 9 pm, the Nod’e B’yehuda opens the door and says Baal Hagala Kum Eshrt, wagon driver you come in first. The real Baal Hagala got up to go in. He gave himself away. The Nod’e B’yehuda understood that to fool people it takes a certain amount of presence of mind. When people get angry they do things that they wouldn’t normally do. His whole plan was to have them sit there for hours and get upset and get angry. Get angry? So he said Baal Hagala you come first and of course the Baal Hagala who had been called Baal Hagala for the past 30 years he got up and he gave it away. That is the Chochmo of the Nod’e B’yehuda and it is recorded in all of the biographies of the Nod’e B’yehuda.

Of course, the lesson is that when you get aggravated, when you get upset or you get angry we do things that are foolish. We don’t keep our heads on straight. We do things not according to the way that we had planned on. Anger is a terrible thing.

I thought the punchline was going to be that the real wagon driver waited patiently (being used to waiting around for others), while the Gvir got upset that he was kept waiting.

Maybe that was Plan A. When that wasn't panning out, he went with Plan B, which worked perfectly...
