Food for thought: The thieves in Our Bus

Author: Unknown

THE THIEVES IN OUR BUS
A Teacher received his salary and boarded a crowded bus back to his home, and there was a thief in the bus. The thief stole the Teacher’s money from his pocket.

After the Teacher reached his destination, the driver asked for his fare, the Teacher dipped his hand into his pocket and found nothing. The Teacher’s face became blushed and his tongue became heavy, he was so embarrassed. The Driver who is now angry said mockingly to the Teacher that: “shame on you, you consider yourself a respected person while you can not afford your transport fare!.”

The Teacher was again very much embarrassed.
As this was going on, pride hit a potion of the thief’s ego and he was moved to say the angry Driver: “My brother, the teacher’s fare is on me!.”

That is, the thief offered to help the teacher, who is his victim. He helped him not out of pity for the poor teacher , but to buy other passengers trust and confidence and to use some of the stolen money to earn respect before the rest of the passengers in the bus.

The poor Teacher who did not understand what was happening smiled and said to the thief: “May God bless you and multiply your likes, sir!.”

Then some of the passengers in the bus also praised the thief, praised his kindness, and also prayed for him and that God should increase his kinds.

Since then, the number of thieves in our bus have increased and they continue to receive our thanks and appreciation;

We are all on a bus where thieves are stealing from us and using the stolen money to buy our trust and earn our respect in a way that we keep thanking them for their “kindness”.

This is the metaphor of the state of our nation, Nigeria!

The thieves in our bus are increasing all the time because we continue praising them for returning small from the many they stole from us.wp_posts
