Horatio Don't Get No Respect The Innocent Bystander by Arthur Hoppe Once upon a time there was a little boy named Horatio Alger who was commen- dably ambitious. He wasn't always so. The psychic trauma that was to shape his life occurred one day as Horatio was lying innocently on the beach. A laughing bully came up and kicked sand in his face. "What are you going to do about it, you 47-pound weakling'.'" taunted the bully. Although he was only three years at the time, Horatio vowed then and there that, above all v else, he would strive to win the respect of his peers. When he was 10. the other boys | wouldn't let him play baseball with them. "I shall work and scrimp until I have a baseball of my own to bring," vowed Horatio. "Then they'll have to let me play." So he worked and scrim ped and bought his own baseball. And they still wouldn't let him play. "All right, I'll work and scrimp and form my own baseball team, the Elm Street Tigers." vowed Horatio. "And I'll play first base." And he did. But after he'd bought the uniforms and bats and balls, the team traded him to the Oak Street Buffalos for a utility infielder and an undisclosed sum of coupons good for ten cents off on a Whopper Burger. But Horatio perservered Right out of high school he won a job as junior clerk in the Piggedy National Bank. True, his follow clerks constantly snubbed him, and his boss couldn't remember his name, but Horatio hardly noticed. For he was in love with Miss Lorelie Bei- burn in Accounts Receivable, to whom he proposed. "Don't be silly, Horatio." said Miss Beiburn. "The man I marry must be smooth, suave and on the fast track. Call me when you're chief clerk.'' "I shall!'' vowed Horatio. And he did. Of course, it took him eight years of 14- hour days to become chief clerk, but at last he was able to call Miss Beiburn and announce his promotion. Unfortunately, by then Miss Beiburn had three children by a 42-year-old tire rotator and a constant Excedrin headache. Worse, messengers still put his mail in the wrong box, no one stepped aside for him at the water cooler and the office boys called him, "Mac." "I shall become president of the bank," vowed Horatio. And he did. Now everyone addressed him as "Mr. Alger. sir." or just plain "sir" for short. But when he invited the presidents of other banks to lunch, they always insisted on dining at their little Italian restaurants. And none ever called him. Charlie Boodley called. Or at least his secretary called. "Mr. Boodley would like you to drop by his office next Tuesday," she said. "He can spare you 20 minutes." As Mr. Boodley wanted to "borrow $n00, Horatio was offended. "I'm going to renounce ihe world and retire to a worm firm," he vowed to his wife Sybyl, whom he married because he'd wanted a woman who would look up to him. But after the wedding she put on high heels and was an inch taller. "Instead," said Sybyl. "why don't you become the most respected person in the world —the president of the United States'.'" What a wonderful idea! Horatio made speeches and shook hands and ate hlintzes and campaigned across (he country; at last it looked as though he very well could be the next president. But it was hard work. And just yesterday he was relaxing in the privacy of his club when the man in the next chair put down the paper. "Poor Ronald Reagan," he said, shaking his head. "Poor Ronald Reagan','" said Horatio, "Why, he's the most respected individual on earth." "Maybe so," said the man, "but all his fellow leaders but Mrs. Thatcher are shunning him, Gorbachev won't talk to him, and the most common folks on the planet think he's a trigger-happy cowboy at best. Moreover ... What's wrong with you. Alger?" "Well," said Horatio, slowly rising and putting on his hat. "hack to the old worm farm."
