There was a man who had a sheep that he wanted to sell, when he was on his way to the market to sell the sheep ; four thieves saw him and decided to steal the sheep smartly. The four thieves sat separately on the side of the road that leads to the market , when the man passed by the first thief he greeted him, the thief greeted the man back and asked him: why do you have a tied dog walking behind you? The man replied: “this is not a dog, it’s a sheep and I’m taking it to the market to sell it” and he kept on walking, few meters after , the second thief was sitting at the side of the road, he greeted the man and asked him the same question, the man took a look back at his sheep and answered him : “this is not a dog, it’s a sheep and I’m taking it to the market to sell it” and he went on his way but doubts started sneaking to his heart so he started feeling his sheep to make sure whether it is a dog as the two men told him or a sheep as he believes!! While walking down the road he met the third thief and again he was asked the same question , the man was very surprised and confused, he didn’t answer the question as he almost believed that he really brought a dog with him not a sheep , few steps later he met the fourth thief and again he asked the man ” why do you have a tied dog walking behind you?! ” here , the man was sure that he brought a dog and not a sheep , because it doesn’t make sense that the four men were lying , so he answered the fourth thief : ” I was in a hurry, I thought that this dog was a sheep ,so I tied him to sell it but did not realize that it was a dog except for now” thus, he untied the sheep and let it go then went back home searching for his “sheep”, and the thieves took the sheep easily and happily …that is how the minds of people are manipulated!
