Mandy started working as an elementary school counselor and was eager to help students. One day, she noticed a girl standing alone on one side of a playing field, while the rest of the kids enjoyed a game of football at the other. Sandy approached the girl and whether she was all right. The girl said she was.
A little while later, Sandy noticed the girl was in the same spot, still alone.
Approaching again, she offered, "Would you like me to be your friend?"
The girl hesitated and then said, "Okay," looking at the Sandy suspiciously.
Sandy then asked, "Why are you standing here all alone?"
"Because," the little girl said with great exasperation, "I'm the goalie!"
