The Poor Tailor and the French Restaurant

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' at netrider.net.au started by Dante, May 9, 2006.

  1. Old Abraham was a poor tailor whose shop was next door to a very
    upscale French restaurant. Every day at lunch time, Abraham would go
    out the back of his shop and eat his black bread and herring while
    smelling the wonderful odors coming from the restaurant's kitchen.

    One day, Abraham was surprised to receive an invoice from the
    restaurant for 'enjoyment of food'. So he went to the restaurant to
    point out that he had not bought anything from them. The manager
    said, "You're enjoying our food, so you should pay us for it."

    Abraham refused to pay and the restaurant sued him. At the hearing,
    the judge asked the restaurant to present their side of the case. The
    manager said, "Every day, this man comes and sits outside our kitchen
    and smells our food while eating his. It is clear that we are
    providing added value to his poor food and we deserve to be
    compensated for it."

    The judge turns to Abraham and said, "What do you have to say to that?"

    Abraham didn't say anything but stuck his hand in his pocket and
    rattled the few coins
    he had inside.

    The judge asked him, "What is the meaning of that?"

    Abraham replied, "I'm paying for the smell of his food with the sound
    of my money."
