Warden’s woodworking woes

Not long ago, a man was sent to a minimum security prison to serve his sentence. During his incarceration, he got along with the guards and inmates, so the warden made arrangements for the man to learn a trade while serving his time. Soon, the man was one of the best carpenters in the area.

The warden happened to be remodelling his kitchen and had done much of the work himself, but lacked the skills needed to build the quality cupboards and first-rate countertops he’d promised his wife.

He called the man into his office and asked if he would complete the job for him, but, the man turned the warden down, saying, “I’d like to help you, but counter fitting is what landed me prison in the first place!”
