At Least One Follower

A father was filling out an application form for his daughter, who was seeking entrance to a very exclusive college. He came to the question on the form which asked whether the applicant was a leader. In honesty, he wrote, “No, but she is a good follower.”

The application was sent in, and a month later a letter arrived notifying him that his daughter had been accepted. At the bottom of the page, the dean had written, “Since the entering class of 500 has 499 leaders, we thought that there ought to be room for one follower.”
