High Rise Microwave Cleaner
The Master told this story about the way people look at other people:
Soon after his marriage, the Master lived on the tenth floor of a city apartment. His young wife one day stepped out of the shower to reach for a towel. She froze! There, outside the window, was a window washer looking at her. A whole minute passed as she stood rooted to the ground, too stunned to move a muscle.
The man broke the spell. “What's the matter lady?” he said. “Haven't you ever seen a window washer?”
