While attending a dinner, newly elected Senator Bill Bradley asked the waiter for an extra pat of butter. The waiter said, "Sorry, one pat per person."
The emcee overheard and demanded: "Do you know who this is? This is Bill Bradley! All-American from Princeton. All-Pro with the Knicks. U.S. senator! Potential president!"
The waiter responded, "Do you know who I am?"
The emcee replied, "I guess I don't. Tell me."
The waiter said, "I'm the guy who controls the butter!"
This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Even a powerful person needs the person who controls the butter. Each person and each person's job is important—in the high calling of our daily work.
