Help A Man…

Sometimes referred to as part of Scottish Wisdom and meant with all humor, this blunt statement carries with it a great weight of vastly unpleasant truth.

Help a man when heís in trouble, and heíll remember you when heís in trouble again.

I think that what humor it evokes is of the “you either have to laugh or cry variety.”

It’s true though; more often than not, the result of helping is man is that he’ll first turn to you the next time he believes that he needs help – and so the cycle of irresponsibility and dependance begins.
