A young man finally got a job at the Post Office.
He was full of energy and eager to please.
The supervisor agreed to work with the new employee, even though he had been warned that he was still immature and knew nothing of the job.
The first job the supervisor gives the young man is in sorting, and much to everyone’s surprise, the new employee separated the letters so fast that his motions were literally a blur.
The supervisor was very pleased and asked the young man to come into his office at the end of the day.
He said, “I just want you to know that we are all very proud of you. You’re one of the fastest workers we have ever had.”
The humble young man said, “Thank you, sir. And tomorrow, I’ll try to do even better.”
“Better?” the supervisor asked with astonishment. “How can you possibly do better?”
The young man smiled proudly and said, “Tomorrow, I am going to read the addresses.”
