Never Judge Anyone By Your Own Yardstick

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called for an
urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes and
went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy's father going
and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor.
Once seeing him, the dad yelled:
"Why did you take all this time to come? Don't you know that my son's
life is in danger? Don't you have the sense of responsibility?"

The doctor smiled and said:
"I am sorry, I wasn't in the hospital and I came the fastest I could
after receiving the call...... And now, I wish you calm down so that I
can do my work"

"Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you
calm down? If your son dies now what will you do??" said the father

The doctor smiled again and replied: "I will say Glory be to God and
give thanks.

"Giving advises when we're not concerned is so easy" Murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor came out happy.
Praise God, your son is saved!" And without waiting for the father's
reply he carried on his way running. "If you have any questions, ask
the nurse, please!"

"Why is he so arrogant? He couldn't wait for some minutes so that I
ask about my son's state" Commented the father when he saw the nurse
minutes after the doctor left.
The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: "His son died
yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him
for your son's surgery. And now that he saved your son's life, he left
running to finish his son's burial."

Never think you have a bigger problem than the next person, never
judge anyone by your own yardstick...because you never know how their
life is and what they're going through :).
