Hometown Hero

I went with a friend to the country to look at a house he was thinking of buying. We found the town but not the road. We drove over to city hall, but no one there had heard of the road, not even the police or firefighters we asked. Finally, a young guy came to our aid. Pulling out a map, he showed us exactly how to get there.

“Thanks,” I said. “Are you with the police or fire department?”

“Neither,” he said. “I deliver pizzas.”
