Good News or Bad News

Robert De Vincenzo, the great Argentine golfer, once
won a tournament and, after receiving the check and
smiling for the cameras, he went to the clubhouse and
prepared to leave. Some time later, he walked alone to
his car in the parking lot and was approached by a
young woman.
She congratulated him on his victory and then told
him that her child was seriously ill and near death.
She did not know how she could pay the doctor's bills
and hospital expenses.

De Vincenzo was touched by her story, and he took out
a pen and endorsed his winning check for payment to
the woman. "Make some good days for the baby," he said
as he pressed the check into her hand.

The next week he was having lunch in a country club
when a Professional Golf Association official came to
his table. "Some of the boys in the parking lot last
week told me you met a young woman there after you won
that tournament." De Vincenzo nodded. "Well," said the
official, "I have news for you. She's a phony. She has
no sick baby. She's not even married. She fleeced you,
my friend."

"You mean there is no baby who is dying?" said De

"That's right," said the official.

"That's the best good news I've heard all week." De
Vincenzo said.

Good news or bad news? It depends on how you see
things. You can be bitter after cheated. Or you can
choose to move on with your life..
