Crash Landing

The watchman said he  wanted me to teach him English.
And boy, was I thrilled?
Finally, I thought, a validation of my English writing skills - after all, wasn't I a published author?
Now someone had the sense to take advantage of my expertise!

So I started teaching him the alphabet and went through the standard drill of 'The cat is on the mat.' He really picked up fast and I felt proud of myself.

A few days later I asked him why he had chosen to learn from me when there were a hundred other residents in the complex. Was it because he thought I was the best in English?
'No sir. You are the only man in the complex who does nothing. You are free all the time whereas the others go to work.'
So much for my puffed up head.
