A Grandma Has The Last Word

But a grandma has laid the issue to rest. Yes, RIP.

Try picking a hole in her verdict:

A friend of mine was a philosophy major during his first semester in college.

One day in a seminar class, they spent a great deal of time debating whether the glass was half full or half empty.

After the class, my friend was feeling pretty good about himself and what he was learning at university, so when he went home, he tried to continue the discussion with his family.  With maximum drama, he took a 12 ounce glass from the cupboard and poured in 6 ounces of water.  Then took it into the dining room and placed it in the middle of the table.

He proudly asked his family, “Can anyone tell me whether this glass is half full or half empty.”

Without missing a beat, his grandmother replied, “Depends if you’re drinking or pouring.”

Any questions?

    An excellent piece. Behind all the humour ‘What is right and what is wrong? Despite a general acceptance of this we have ISIS and RSS forcing opinions.
