The Boots|چکمه ها

“173rd story”

Shadi was a daycare teacher for four-year-old kids.

Once on a recess, she was trying to put a kid’s boots on, but as much as she tried, it didn’t fit the kid’s feet. She picked up the kid, sat him on the desk, and tried again to fit the boots.

After tiresome very hard, the boots adequate. She put the boy down and,

sighted loud and was happy that finally it’s done.

The boy said: “The boots are on my wrong feet.”

Shadi picked up the boy again and put him on the desk. She pushed and pulled till finally, the boots came off. And carefully, with lots of struggle, put the boots back on his feet, on the correct foot.

The boy said: “These are not my boots.”

Shadi took a deep breath, shook her head, and whispered: “Oh, My God.”

She took the boots off the boy’s feet with grapple again and said: “Okay, love, which boots are yours?”

The boy said: “The ones you took off.”

Shadi was confused and laughed loudly.

“These are my brother’s boots. My mother said I could wear them today.” The boy said.

Shadi put the boots back on the boys’ feet again and said: “Where are your gloves?”

The boy said: “Inside my boots so I wouldn’t lose them.”

  1. That’s a fun story and a child would be that logical. I’m impressed the teacher did not say something to the little imp.
