> It’s late fall and the Indians on a remote reservation in South Dakota

> Since he was a chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the

> Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the

> But, being a practical leader, after several days, he got an idea, He
> went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and
> asked, ‘Is the coming winter going to be cold?’
> ‘It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold,’ the
> meteorologist at the weather service responded.
> So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even
> more firewood in order to be prepared.
> A week later, he called the National Weather Service again. ‘Does it
> still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?’
> ‘Yes,’ the man at National Weather Service again replied, ‘it’s going
> to be a very cold winter.’
> The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect
> every scrap of firewood they could find.
> Two weeks later, the chief called the National Weather Service again.
> ‘Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?’
> ‘Absolutely,’ the man replied. ‘It’s looking more and more like it is
> going to be one of the coldest winters we’ve ever seen.’
> ‘How can you be so sure?’ the chief asked.
>
> The weatherman replied, ‘The Indians are collecting firewood like crazy.’
> Remember this whenever you get advice from a government official!
