A man is walking down the street and falls into a manhole. He calls his priest on his cell phone. The priest tells him to do thirty rosaries and the Lord will lift him out. He does the rosaries and the Lord does not lift him out.
He then calls his therapist who writes him a prescription for Prozac. His therapist tells him that once he chills out he will be able to figure out how to get out of the manhole. He takes the Prozac but still finds himself stuck.
He then calls his life coach who sends him a motivational tape and tells him to visualize his way out. The man does so and nothing happens.
Finally, an agile coach walks by and the man once again cries out for help. The agile coach immediately jumps into the manhole.
The man exclaims, “What are you doing!? You are supposed to get me out of this manhole, not jump into it!”
The agile coach says, “I’ve been in this hole before and gotten out, and we will get out together.”
