“A real mentor is someone who walks along side of us. They have an
ear to listen to us. They bring their maturity and experience into our
lives. They’ve ‘been there, done that.’ When you think of a mentor,
think of someone who goes, the way, shows the way, and knows the way.” –

A man walked into a doctor’s office. “What do you have?” the receptionist asked. “Shingles,” he replied. She told him to sit down. Soon a nurse called him and asked, “What do you have?” “Shingles,” he replied.
She took his blood pressure, weight, and complete medical history. Then she took him to a room and told him to remove all of his clothes. After a few minutes the doctor came in and asked, “What do you have?” “Shingles,” the man told him.
The doctor looked him up and down and said, “Where?” “Out on the truck. Where do you want me to unload them?”
