A Grocer and a Fruit-seller

One day a grocer borrowed a balance and weights from a fruit-seller. After a few days, the fruit-seller asked the grocer to return his balance and weights. The grocer said, “The mice ate away your balance and weight.” The lame excuse of the dishonest grocer made the fruit-seller very angry but the controlled his temper and told him that it was his bad luck. But the fruit-seller very thinking of a plan to teach him a good lesson. Accordingly, once the fruit-seller requested the grocer to allow his son to go with him to the town as he was going there to do some shopping. The grocer allowed his son to go with him. The next day, the fruit-seller returned alone from the town when the grocer asked him about his son, the fruit-seller replied that a crow had carried his son away. At this, the grocer grew very angry and calling him a liar asked him how a crow could carry his son away. The fruit-seller instantly replied that it carried his son away in the same way as mice could eat int his balance and weights. The grocer understood what the fruit-seller meant to say and returned the balance and the weights to the fruit-seller. The fruit-seller also sent the boy back to his father.
