    One Club that I sure don't want to join - The 99 Club


    Once upon a time, there lived a King who, despite his luxurious
    lifestyle, was neither happy nor content.

    One day, the King came upon a servant who was singing happily while
    he worked. This fascinated the King; why was he, the Supreme Ruler
    of the Land, unhappy and gloomy, while a lowly servant had so much
    joy. The King asked the servant, "Why are you so happy?"

    The man replied, "Your Majesty, I am nothing but a servant, but my
    family and I don't need too much - just a roof over our heads and
    warm food to fill our tummies."

    The king was not satisfied with that reply. Later in the day, he
    sought the advice of his most trusted advisor. After hearing the
    King's woes and the servant's story, the advisor said, "Your
    Majesty, I believe that the servant has not been made part of The 99
    Club."

    "The 99 Club? And what exactly is that?" the King inquired.
    The advisor replied, "Your Majesty, to truly know what The 99 Club
    is, place 99 Gold coins in a bag and leave it at this servant's
    doorstep."

    When the servant saw the bag, he took it into his house. When he
    opened the bag, he let out a great shout of joy... So many gold
    coins!

    He began to count them. After several counts, he was at last
    convinced that there were 99 coins. He wondered, "What could've
    happened to that last gold coin? Surely, no one would leave 99
    coins!"

    He looked everywhere he could, but that final coin was elusive.
    Finally, exhausted, he decided that he was going to have to work
    harder than ever to earn that gold coin and complete his collection.

    From that day, the servant's life was changed. He was overworked,
    horribly grumpy, and castigated his family for not helping him make
    that 100th gold coin. He stopped singing while he worked.

    Witnessing this drastic transformation, the King was puzzled. When
    he sought his advisor's help, the advisor said, "Your Majesty, the
    servant has now officially joined The 99 Club."

    Yeah, this is sure one club that I don't won't to join...What about
    you ?
