A Poor Farmer & Bakery Man

Once upon a time, there lived a farmer and a baker who did business with each other. <>

The farmer sold a pound of butter to the baker everyday and the baker sold a pound of bread loaf to the farmer. <>

Soon, they had a good bond and became friends. <>

One day, the baker suspected that the baker was cheating him and that he didn’t give him a pound of butter, so he decided to weigh the butter to see if he was actually getting the right amount.<>

When he measured the butter, he found that he was not getting the right amount of butter from the farmer. <>

This made him very angry and so he decided to take the poor farmer to the court.<>


When the judge confronted the farmer with the accusation the farmer replied “Your Honor, long before the baker started buying butter from me, I have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Everyday when the baker brings the bread, I put it on the scale and give him the same weight in butter.” If anyone is to be blamed, it is the baker.<>
