How Do You Deal With Friends Who Want To Demean You?

Like Dennis Prager, I’ve dedicated my life to uplifting the human condition.

I pattern my behavior on tne highest ideals of Western Civilization in general and the Torah in particular.

Despite this, I have people in my life who try to take me down from my cross (I climb up there every day to try to expiate the world’s sins).

For instance, at 4 pm, my friend and employer called.

"Hello," I said.

"Hello cocksucker," he said.

Yesterday when I picked up the phone, he called me "scumbag."

On other days, he calls me "nigger." He says I have an African-American work ethic.

I’m not sure how to respond. I make about $500 a month from assisting this gentleman in a few of his more legitimate endeavors.

All I know is — I don’t want to go back to dancing.
