Bathing Girl on Ebay

A young girl was bathing in a river and got out of her depth, and was in great danger of being drowned. A man who was passing near heard her cries for help. He went to the riverside and began to scold the girl for being so careless as to get into deep water. “Oh sir,” cried the girl, “please help me first and scold me second.”

Give assistance, not advice, in a crisis.
