Buddy Howard ' . "What can I do to help you". . .and. . /'What's ifl it for me". . .arfe two opposing attitudes. '.'What's in it for me"" is a self c4rtt6red demand, lacks every altruistic and lofty purpose. The "What's in it for me" attitude has identified people in the past just as it labels pebple today. Judas received his infamous thirty pieces of dirty silver by dramatizing the thtiught in the lowest and crudest form. Gradually and happily, it does seem a. better. philosophy is taking hold. More and more we hear incidents, we see examples of "Can I help you". . . Strangely enough (or is it so strange?) the " Can I help you" attitude has a wonderful way to remove the fatal flaw of greed. More often than not, the "Can I help you" attitude provides us with an ample answer to "What's in it for me" . . . MRS.
