A short story of the farmer who sold a pound of butter to the baker.

There was a farmer who sold a pound of butter to the baker. One day the baker decided to weigh the butter to see if he was getting a pound and he found that he was not. Thia angered him and he took the farmer to the court. The judge asked the farmer if he was using any measure. The farmer replied, amour honour, I am primitive. I don’t have a proper measure, but I do have a scale. The judge asked, “then how do you weigh the butter?” the farmer replied “your honor, long before the baker started buying butter from me, I have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Every day when the baker brings the bread, I put it on the scale and give him the same weight in butter. If anyone is to be blamed, it will be the baker.”

Now what is the moral of the story?

We get back in life what we give to others. Whenever you take an action, ask yourself this question : Am I giving fair value for the wages or money I have to make? Honesty and dishonesty becomes a habit. Some people practice dishonesty and can lie with a straight face. Others lie so much that they don’t even know what the truth is anymore. But who are they deceiving?

The answer is Themselves.

Thank you for reading this story and I hope we will all learn from this.
