Sharyl’s take on the prompt…Poor Joe? Maybe not.
Some people told Joe he was crazy to work for old man Jones, but Joe ignored them. With no degrees or diplomas and a big family to support, Joe took whatever job he could find. No matter what Mr. Jones asked him to do, Joe did it.
Joe’s work ethic is rarely seen in these “me me me” days, but—a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do—was his attitude. Of course old man Jones knew this and took full advantage of Joe, watching him struggle with his bike full of bricks.
