The Practical Man

Three travelers were wandering through the desert. They were lost and their mules had died. They walked many days and nights without food or water. Now, as you know, the desert is hot. The heat was drying these men out. Their hopes were running out. They needed water.
Finally, a miracle happened. They found a tent and under this tent was a table. On this table was a glass of water. The first man saw the glass and spoke, "This glass is half full."
The second man saw the glass and spoke, "Oh, dear. This glass is half empty."
The third man said nothing, but grabbed the glass and drunk the water. After he finished drinking, he spoke, "Gentleman, you have to take advantage of any situation whether the circumstances are good or bad."
