A mentor of mine once told me that a great way to let go of your anger is to write letters to people you hate and then burn them. Well, I did that and I feel much, much better, but I'm not sure what to do with all these letters.

Why shouldn't short people be mentors ?
Because you can't look up to them

    New doctor is being mentored by old doctor. As they make rounds visiting patients, new doctor reads the chart of one of the patients and turns really sad.
    Old doc: "what's the matter?"
    New doc: "Well, this young patient is about to have his leg amputated and I have no idea how to break these terrible news to him."
    Old doc: "Let me show you. Not only will he be OK with it, he'll be actually looking forward to it! Watch and learn". Walks into the room and tells the patient:
    "Mr Jones, I am afraid I have terrible news. You have a rapidly progressing cancer and have only days to live. I am sorry."
    Mr. Jones: "But! but! but! HOW?! I just injured my leg at work and now you're telling me I am going to die of cancer in my 20's?! Oh my god! How will my family survive this?!"
    Old doc flips through some pages, winks at young doctor and says: "Wait, are you Mr. Jim David Jones?"
    Patient: "No, I am Michael David Jones!"
    Old doc: "Oh, thank heaves! My bad - so sorry! Gosh, wrong Mr. Jones! Well, I'm sure you'll be relived to know that your case is much more promising - you'll survive, as long as we promptly amputate that crushed leg of yours - before it causes septic shock and kills you. What do you say you sign on the surgery consent form right here? Hm?"

Today my mentor told me if I want to achieve great things I'd have to make sacrifices.
Anyone know where to buy live chickens for cheap?

    A fencer was sparring with his mentor. They had sparred many times before, but today, for some reason, the fencer just wasn't able to land a single hit.
    "Ha!" the mentor taunted, "You'll never win if you keep using such obvious attacks!"
    The fencer feinted.
