In Hollywood, every producer has his "Yes Man" whose job it is to follow the producer around and say, "Yes, CB," "Right, CB" and so on. Well, one of these Yes Men got so depressed at having to agree even to bad decisions that he consulted a psychiatrist.
The psychiatrist quickly determined the problem, and told the Yes Man that he just had to find a release for his negative feelings, and say "No."
"But if I said 'no' I'd get fired!" The Yes Man protested. The psychiatrist said, "Oh, I don't mean on the job. Go out to the Grand Canyon and find a ledge way off the trail, and there you can yell 'NO!' to your heart's content and no one will be the wiser."
Well, the Yes Man decided to try it. He went to the Grand Canyon and found a spot off the trail, and stood there and very timidly said, "no." It felt good, so he tried it a little louder, "No." Even better! Soon he was shouting "NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!!!!" at the top of his lungs and feeling great. Word got around about this wonderful release of tension, and soon every weekend the Grand Canyon was crammed with Yes Men shouting "NO!"
The first Yes Man soon discovered that all of the best ledges seemed to be taken. Finally he found a very small ledge which had been overlooked. Thankfully he scurried out on it and stood there and said "No." It felt great! So he wound up and released an enormous "NO!" and in so doing lost his balance and fell to his death.
Which just goes to prove "A Little 'No Ledge' Can Be a Dangerous Thing."
