Candlestand

Sometimes telling truth is beneficial.

‘I came to steal the gold candle stand.  I was waiting for the candle to burn out, it took so much time that I dozed off.’ 

The thief explained to the owner of the house who startled him by a kick in the shin.

‘You fool! Didn’t you notice the electric wire connected to it? It’s a showpiece, that melted wax is artificial.’

The owner started laughing; tears rolling down his cheeks.

I have not laughed since my wife’s death. Now run away before I call the police.’

The embarrassed thief ran out like a bullet.

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  9. There really are plenty criminals this stupid, fortunately. My favorite story is the man who tried to run away from the police at night while wearing the shoes that light up. 🙂 Your story is amusing in such a humane way, Indira. Very good.

  10. I like the way you easily moved from silly thief to gentle home owner. I’m glad the “bad guy” brought joy.
