There lived a butcher in a small town. One of the days, the butcher cut his hand very deep and had to go to the only doctor in the township.
The doctor checked the wound carefully and realized there is a small piece of bone inside the wound.
The doctor cleaned the wound and patched it and left the little piece of bone inside the cut, and told the butcher: “You have to come to visit me every day. Your wound is intense, and I have to clean it and change the patch, or else it will get infected.”
The doctor’s real purpose was to make more money.
The unfortunate butcher was in severe pain and visited the doctor regularly and brought a big piece of meat and money for each visit.
The pain was constant, and the wound was getting worse.
One day the doctor had to go to a neighboring village to visit some patients. The doctor’s son was learning from his father, and in his absence, he took care of his father’s patients.
The butcher came for his daily dressing of the wound. The doctor’s son checked the injury and said: “The reason that your wound is still in pain and its’s not healing Is that there is a piece of bone inside it. Don’t worry I will take it out, and you will get better very fast.”
The next day the butcher felt so much better. The pain was gone and went to see the son of the doctor and said: “You are a better doctor than your father. I don’t have any pain.”
The son of the doctor said: “There is no need to come to see us. You are fine.”
The doctor came back home the next day at dinner time, there was no meat with the rice and the stew on the table.
The doctor said: “Where is the meat of this food. Didn’t the butcher come for his cut?!”
The son said: “Yes, and surprisingly I saw there was a piece of bone inside his wound and took it out. The poor butcher was in pain for a long time and paid a lot of money for no reason.”
