CONFERENCE OF THE TOOLS

The tools had a conference to settle some complaints.  Brother Hammer presided.

Several suggested he should leave because he was too noisy.
“If I leave, then Brother Screw must go too. You have to turn him round and round to get him to accomplish anything.”
“If I leave, Brother Plane must leave too, for his work is all surface, no depth.”
“Will go, if Brother Rule also withdraws. He measures folks as though he’s the only one right.”
“Sure, if Brother Sandpaper does. He is always rubbing people up the wrong way.”

In walked the carpenter, put on his apron, went to his bench, and during the day used the hammer, screw, plane, ruler, sandpaper and all the other tools.
