Flat Tire|لاستیک پنچر

“116th story”

First  Published: Nov.07.2019

The students of a university were getting ready for an important exam. Everyone was studying very hard.


There were four friends, and these four friends just liked to have fun and party. They didn’t study at all for that exam and partied, up to five in the morning.


The exam started at eight in the morning, and the four lazy friends showed up at nine. They walked into the class with a messy look and dirty suits.


One of the boys told the professor: “We were at a wedding last night. The ceremony was in a town far from here.


After the party finished, we had to drive back, but we got a flat tire and had no spare tire.


We had to call for help, and now that we are exhausted, we probably can’t focus and get good grades. We were wondering if you could give us another chance?”


The professor understood and kindly set the exam date only for them in the next week, the same day and hour.

The four students were thrilled that their plan worked. They promised themselves to study hard for the exam this time.


The next week came, all four students were in the class sharp at eight and ready for the hardest exam.

The professor came in and said: “Because this exam is only for you four, I have to ask you to sit in four separate rooms and do the exam.”


The four students didn’t mind, they studied very hard, and they were ready.

The professor had prepared four rooms and four helpers to watch them.

When the four students turned the question page, there were only four questions:


  • What were the groom and bride’s names?
  • In what town the wedding was attended?
  • Which tire was flat?
  • Who came to help with the flat tire?
