Tight Corner

Tight Corner
by Ben Huberman
Have you ever managed to paint yourself into the proverbial corner because of your words? What did you do while waiting for them “to dry”?


My brother-in-law F has a big heart. He is a living example of what his name stands for.

He had some guests at his home. They were a husband, and wife couple. Both of them were bemoaning the fact, that they were short of money for something they wanted.

F’s heartstrings were pulled with their sob story. He offered them his latest BMW, and told them to sell it to get the money.

They were taken aback with F’s generosity. Thankfully they didn’t accept at that moment. Later on they must have thought over it, and decided to accept. Meanwhile F had also regained his senses, and became un-available.

He does klutzy things like that, and my sister has (literally) heart attacks every time he is in one of his generous moods.
