Prescription for Dealing with Frustrations

A man who took great pride in his lawn found himself one day with a horrible crop of dandelions.

He tried every method imaginable to get rid of them. One herbicide after the other but the dandelions still plagued his lawn.

Finally the man wrote to the Department of Agriculture telling them about his problem, listing all the things he had tried and putting his question in the finale: “What should I do now?”

A few days later he received the reply which was contained in this short sentence:

“We suggest that you learn to love them.”

Not a bad reply also for those situations that exasperate us and those weedy people who you can never get rid of. (I’m not thinking of anyone in particular! G£)
