There was once a young man who was educated up to college level but was unlucky to secure any employment. Everyday he would move to a certain location in town popularly known as a jobless corner since it was a place that was frequented by the educated but unemployed. With time this young man earned himself a new set of friends and so he got a daily accompany in that place.
But they all had experiences to share concerning why one was jobless. Some felt that their next of kin had failed them by promising them jobs that never came to materialize while others lost their jobs due to unavoidable circumstances.
So they all had something to share with each other concerning their jobless experiences. Then one day this man went to his usual place only to find that his friends had not yet arrived but instead found two men chatting joyously and even wore shades on their eyes.
From their conversation, this young man grasped that their joy was due to their previous day happenings. The two talked how they were driven to their favorite places though he could not know by whom.
First he was unhappy that his friends were not around and then the fact that these two men had opted to occupy the jobless corner and yet from their talk and laughter, they both had jobs. So he approached them questioning them why they had come to this place yet it was not meant for them since they had jobs. They ignored him and continued laughing and would even hit each others hands with excitement. This made him even angrier and he even sat between them but this did not stop their excitement as he continued with his lamentations.
Then they kept quiet and then they both removed the shades from their eyes and the young man was surprised that they were both blind. They both told him that he was lucky to have his sight though unemployed since he can still go about searching for a job but for their case, they had to depend on well wishers for help.
One man said that he was born blind while the other one fell sick when he was about 5 years and lost his eye sight and he was truly sorry for them. He then learnt later that his friends had secured jobs in a new upcoming company.
This story teaches us that though one is faced by hardships and challenges; other people may be experiencing worse challenges than you.
