House of the Golden Rule

You need to do more than treat strangers with respect. An angel may appear as your brother, as a shopkeeper whom you think you know, as your housecleaner, as your banker. One may offer you a chance to get rich. Another may test you with a hard-luck story. They may praise you; they may try to trick you. They may lure you into a false sense of confidence. What do you do when they don’t treat you as you wish to be treated? Come in; sit here in this comfortable chair. Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? We’ll tell you a story and let you decide if it has a moral. Some of our storytellers make it up as they go along. We’ll let you decide if the story’s about you.
