Train TicketNasrudin was about to board a train, and the conductor asked him for histicket.Nasrudin began looking through his pants pockets, but he couldn’t find it.“One moment,” he said. “I know I brought it.”He searched his bag, and still couldn’t find it. He then searched the flooraround him, and the missing ticket still eluded him. He even began lookingin his socks, but also, the money was not found.As the conductor watched this, he asked, “Why don’t you check that pocketon your shirt? That’s usually where most people put their ticket.”“Oh, I can’t look there,” Nasrudin replied.“Why not?” the conductor asked.Nasrudin explained, “Because if I do and I find out it is not there, then Iwould have no hope at all of finding it!“
The GuaranteeOne day at the King’s court, the King turned to Nasrudin and said, “Mulla. Since you areconstantly reminding us of how clever and wise you are, tell me this: can you teach your donkeyto read?”“Absolutely,” replied Nasrudin. “A task like that would present me with no problems whatsoever.”“Don’t mess with me,” said the King. “Seriously, can you do it?”“Yes, I mean it,” Nasrudin replied, “and I’ll tell you what: just give me fifty thousand dollars rightnow, and I’ll guarantee I’ll have this donkey reading within eight years.”“OK,” said the King. “But if that donkey isn’t reading by then, I’ll put you in prison and have youtortured daily.”So they agreed, and Nasrudin left the court.The next day, Nasrudin’s friend asked about what happened.“Are you out of your mind?” he said. “You can barely teach your donkey to stand still, and nowyou’ve guaranteed that he’ll be reading within eight years. Nasrudin-I don’t see how you’ll beable to escape a long prison sentence for this.”“Listen,” the Mulla calmly replied, “several years from now, our King will probably be dead or outof power. And even if he manages to last as our King for that long, odds are my donkey will havepassed on by then. And in the unlikely event that neither he nor my donkey is gone by sevenyears time, I’ll still have an entire year to plan my way out of getting punished.”
