    Default 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 in his
    heart?
    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."
    Later in the day, the King 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."
    He continued, "The 99 Club is a name given to those people who have enough
    to be happy but are never contented, because they're always yearning and
    striving for that extra 1 to round it out to 100!
    We can be happy, even with very little in our lives, but the minute we're
    given something bigger and better, we want even more! We lose our sleep,
    our happiness, we hurt the people around us; all these as a price for our
    growing needs and desires. That's what joining The 99 Club is all about."

    What happened when the servant found there were 99 pairs of bra instead of 99 coins?

    Would he go looking for 99 bare breasted women?

    Think about this tonight before you go to sleep.
