A tired old man gives life advice to any passerby. Usually that advice is pretty simple, to the point, and almost useless. Especially since the only advice he gives is how to use a wishing well. However, people keep coming, and he keeps helping. More
An old man sits by a wishing well and instructs people how to use it. Doesn't seem like it's a job that should exist, but he's living proof that it does. A few wanderers occasionally come by to use the well, make their wish, and then fall victim to the human tendency to talk to others. Our old man named Halbert hates this last part, but he helps how he can. Usually not at all. One gentleman questions the nature of a wishing well, one lady tries to throw away a small fortune to gain a larger one, and one man realizes that some wishes are just too stupid. Unlucky for Halbert, they all feel that need to tell him all about it. But what can he do? He is the wishing well man.
