For What Does A Man Sow, That He Shall Reap,...sad SHORT STORY by R2bees(m): 12:12pm On Dec 24, 2012
One afternoon a husband
arrived home with sad news
for his wife.
HUSBAND: Wife, I just received
a call, mother (mama) passed
away. Shall we go to town and get some necessities for
the funeral? Please write a list
and then we can go.
WIFE: A list won't be
necessary, we'll just get
2cabbages & 2 liters of cooking oil.
HUSBAND: Is it going to be
enough?
WIFE: No need to waste
money, of course its going to
be enough! (They left for town and after getting two
cabbages and 2 litres of
cooking oil), the husband
asked his wife again if that
was all.
She emphasized the issue of not wasting money on the
funeral. They then hit the road
towards
the village and where the road
branches to different villages,
the husband driving, took a turn to his wife's home.)
WIFE: Where are we going,? I
thought you said we are going
to the funeral, your mother
passed
away. HUSBAND: Yes we are; its YOUR
mother who passed away.
WIFE (shocked & crying): But
that grocery is not enough!
Lets go back and get some
more stuff! HUSBAND: NO! I asked you
over and over if it was all that
was needed and you said
"yes"; so we are not going
back!
Moral of the story: Whatever that you want done to you,
do it to others as well...
