young boy, about eight years old, was at the corner "Mom & Pop"
grocery store picking out a pretty good size box of laundry detergent. The grocer
walked over and, trying to be friendly, asked the boy if he had a lot of laundry
no laundry," the boy said. "I'm going to wash my dog."
you shouldn't use this to wash your dog. It's very powerful and if you wash
your dog in this, he'll get sick. In fact, it might even kill him."
the boy was not to be stopped and carried the detergent to the counter and paid
for it, even as the grocer still tried to talk him out of washing his dog.
a week later the boy was back in the store to buy some candy. The grocer asked
the boy how his dog was doing.
he died," the boy said.
grocer, trying not to be an I-told-you-so, said he was sorry the dog died but
added, "I tried to tell you not to use that detergent on your dog."
the boy replied, "I don't think it was the detergent that killed him."
what was it then?"
think it was the spin cycle."
