Some years ago, Mike was sentenced to prison. During his stay, he got along well with the guards and all his fellow inmates. The warden saw that deep down, Mike was a good person and made arrangements for Mike to learn a trade while doing his time. After three years, Mike was recognized as one of the best carpenters in the local area. Often he would be given a weekend pass to do odd jobs for the citizens of the community, and he always reported back to prison before Sunday night was over.
The warden was remodelling his kitchen and had done much of the work himself. But he lacked the skills to build the large countertop which he had promised to his wife. He called Mike into his office and asked him to complete the job for him.
But, alas, Mike refused. He told the warden, “Gosh, I’d really like to help you, but counter fitting is what got me into prison in the first place.”
