A man stole thousands of gold coins from the town’s treasury. They caught him and arrested him.
Another man who took a pile of hay for his hungry cow was also; arrested.
They took both thieves to the judge. After careful verification, the judge read the verdict. The man who stole gold coins from the town’s treasury was sent free by the judge, but the man who took hay was convicted to jail for one year.
The hay Taker was surprised by the verdict; he didn’t mind the judge decided to put him in jail for a year, maybe he did deserve it. He didn’t understand why the gold thief was sent free.
The hay Taker tried so hard to find out, but no one had an answer for that.
One day when he was in jail, he was explaining to the jailer the reason for him being in prison. And the hay Taker told that at the same time, there was a thief of the gold coins who was sent free by the judge.
The jailer laughed very hard.
The hay Taker asked: “What’s so funny about that?”
The jailer said: “You are in jail because the judge couldn’t eat hay. The gold coin was valuable enough to buy the judge. I guess next time you have to be smart, about what to steal. You are living in an unfair world.”
