Once upon a time a man guested for his mean friend, as soon as the guest arrived, the tightwad called for his son telling him: my boy, our guest is dear to my heart.
Go and buy us half a kilogram of the best meats. The son went and after a while he came back buying nothing!
The father asked him: where is the meat?
The son said: I went to the butcher and said to him: give me the best meat you have!
The Butcher said: I will give you meatlike butter.
I said to myself, if so, why I don’tbuy butter instead of meat …..
I went to the grocer and said: give me the best butter you have.
The grocer said: I will give you butter like molasses.
The boy said to himself: if so, I will buy molasses…
I went to molasses seller and said: give me the best molasses you have.
The man said: I will give you molasses like the pure water.
The Boy: I said to myself if so ….. We do have pure water in home and that’s why I came back with nothing.
The father said: what a clever boy! ….. But you missed something; you have used upyour shoes running from one shop to another!
The son answered: no my father …… I used our guest shoes?!!.
