He had it all…

I talked to a homeless man this morning and asked him how he ended up this way.

He said, “Up until last week, I still had it all.  I had plenty to eat, my clothes were washed and pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had HDTV and Internet, and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library.”

“I was working on my MBA on-line.  I had no bills and no debt.  I even had Full medical coverage.”

I felt sorry for him, so I asked, “What happened?  Drugs?  Alcohol?  Divorce?”

“Oh no, nothing like that,” he said. “No, no… I was paroled.”
