Your honesty will the tested daily

A woman walks into a meat-shop just before closing time and asks, “do you still have chicken?”

The butcher opens his deep freezer, takes out his only chicken left and puts it on the weighing scale, and it weighs 1.5 kg.

The woman looks at the chicken and at the scale and asks, “do you have one that’s a bit bigger than this one?”

The butcher puts his only chicken back into the freezer, and then takes it out again, but this time when he puts it on the scale; he craftily keeps his thumb on the scale pan. And the scale now shows 2 kg.

“That’s wonderful,” said the woman. “I’ll take both of them, please!”

In a situation like this, you realize that your integrity and your reputation are firmly on the line. Your wisdom becomes your foolishness and your cunningness becomes your stupidity. Always tell the truth and you will be free. A good name is better than riches. Live to express yourself and not to impress others.
