Mr Silva and Mr. Perera are very good friends. One Sunday evening they are having a
beer at Silva's place.

These gentlemen, being bachelors still, kept servants to maintain the house and also to
run errands for them.

After few rounds of drinks, their topic of discussion turned to servants. Mr. Perera says
to Mr.Silva,

"I say Mr.Silva, I think my servant Banda should be the most foolish servant in the world."

"Come on Mr. Perera, I will eat my head if you can prove that Banda is more foolish than
my servant Junda."

"Okay, okay we'll see". And Mr.Silva calls Banda and handed him 10 Rupees and tells,
"Banda, you go to the Toyota dealer at the corner of the street and buy me a new Camry
with that."
"Certainly, Sir" and off goes Banda.

"You see Mr. Perera, how foolish is my servant"

"Huh!, you say that is foolish, wait till you see my servant" and calls Junda and gave him
two Rupees.

"Junda, take this 2.00 Rs and go to my office. Ask, my secretary if I am at the office"

"Certainly, Sir" and darts Junda out of the door.

Mr.Silva and Mr. Perera are trying vehemently, to convince the other that his servant is
the most foolish.

Meanwhile, Banda and Junda are on their little errands, and they happened to meet at
the street corner.

"See Junda", Banada says to Junda, "I think I have got the most foolish master in the
whole world. "

"No Banda, Mine is the most stupid"

"Junda, see how stupid my master is, he just gave me 10 Rs. and told me to buy a new
Camry for him today"


"So?, this fool, he does not know that the Toyota dealer is closed on Sunday."

"You think that is foolish? my master just gave me two Rupees and told me to go to
his office and check whether he is in."


"This fool does not know that it costs only a rupee to give a call to his office and check
it for himself instead of giving me two rupees."
