Every Saturday, Nasreddin went to the market to buy food

and other things. He put them in a big basket, but he was

old and weak, so he always paid another man to carry the

basket home for him. But one Saturday, while he was walking

home in front of the man with the basket, the man ran away with it.

The next Saturday, when Nasreddin went to the market

again, a friend of his said, 'Look, there he is! That man stole your things last week!'

Nasreddin at once hid behind a shop, and stayed there

until the man left the market.

His friend was very surprised. 'Why did you do that?' he asked.

'Well,' said Nasreddin, 'that man was carrying my basket

when he left me a week ago. He will want me to pay him for

seven days' work, and that will cost me more than a basketfull of things!'
