There lived a beautiful lady married to a poor con man. The husband had a plan and told his fine-looking wife: “It’s been a while we haven’t had a proper meal, clothes, etc. I can’t take it anymore. I have a plan.”
The husband told his wife the plan.
The wife went to the Judge of the town and said: “Your honor, I am here to complain about my husband.”
The Judge saw a beautiful lady in need and told her: “Here, it is very crowded if you come to my home. I can listen carefully to your complaint.”
The wife said: “Your house is known, and someone might see me getting in, but my place is empty in a poor neighborhood, and my husband won’t come home till late at night. You can come after your work is done.”
The Judge went to the beautiful lady’s place with his assistant.
In a short period of time, the husband came home. The wife asked the Judge to hide in a the old chest located in the corner of the room.
The Judge went to the empty box and hid.
The husband came in and saw a strange man. The fake fight started.
The husband said: “I will burn this old chest, the only memory of your family. You need to learn to respect me. God knows what you have been doing behind my back.”
When the husband went outside to find matches, the Judge asked his assistant to buy the treasure chest.
The assistant knew the Judge, and it wasn’t his first time to solve a similar problem.
When the husband came in, the assistant said: “At least let me buy the chest. Don’t burn it.”
And asked the price.
The husband said: “One thousand gold coins.”
The assistant said: “It’s not even worth one silver coin.”
The husband said, “This is my price, or I will burn it in the middle of the town.”
It was the matter of Judge’s reputation and honor, so the assistant agreed with the price.
The couple made an enormous amount of money. What I learned:
The husband is an example of the hungry people in society who use their minds to the path of deceiving, fraud, and abuse.
The Judge is an excellent example of the influential people who control society to abuse others’ wealth, beliefs, principles, and integrity. All history remembers the circle of life was like this.
