The Skill Of Telling Truth

MH900414039A Wealthy Businessman was a heart patient. Everybody at home was instructed not to give him any alarming news.

The Businessman was on his business trip when one of his servants visited him and told, “Sir, I am sorry your cat passed away!”

The Businessman asked, “How did my cat die?”

Servant said “The cat died after it ate a lot of Rabbit meat”

Businessman: “You mean my Rabbit is also dead?”

Servant: “Master, All the rabbits in the cage were found dead because they had nothing to eat”

Businessman: “Didn’t you servants feed them?”

Servant: “How could we when we were starving ourselves”

Businessman: “Didn’t my wife give you any food to eat?”

Servant: “How could your wife live without any food?”

Businessman: “But we have two cooks in our house. Don’t tell me they are dead too”

Servant: “Master, yesterday night, the heater burst and the house caught fire. Everyone in the house was killed in the fire”

This way the servant told the truth without shocking his master.
