A father to his dumb son: Dear son! I could not make some payment to Mr. Rao. due to lack of time so I want u to do so. I am going to Delhi today and most probably will be back on sunday.
Bunty: Ohhh! How is that possible to come tomorrow?? 12 hours are taken in one side journey to delhi and u……..
Father: U idiot! talking about next Sunday.
Bunty: Oh! U didn’t mention that actually.
Father: (shouting) Do i need to mention everything you blo**y rocket!..hmm?? Why do you call me father?? I have never mentioned this too even before.
Bunty: Actually Dad! ….I think it’s my.. common sense because you know how sincere I am (paused for a moment and said suddenly with a little smile)
Father: Ohh my god! U know what son? I have lost my sense only once in my whole life at that night and that mistake has been resulted in form of you (disappearing in some moments).
Bunty: wow… how interesting those moments might have been…Oh, Dad! I have interest to know the whole story.
Father: Go to your mom. She used to explain anything better than me.
Bunty: Oh dad! What’s wrong with you? You know that she is no more or you indirectly want me to die because it would be the only way to meet her.
Father: wow…nice common sense u have used to make me happy. Now use your common sense to make the payment. The cash is inside the locker and I don’t know how much money it has been this month. So go to Mr. Rao and ask that…… Yes one more thing! I think it would be better to pay the money with some interests. (asserting) because It becomes easy to pay the cash in some installments. ok??
Bunty: ok father.
(Father has come back from delhi late night so didn’t ask anything to his son. Next morning Both were taking tea together)
Father: So dear! how did you enjoy this week??
Bunty: Oh father! My this week completely went in calculation.
Father: (surprising) Wow! Did u start solving mathematics??? Oh this is what i was waiting for a long time.
Bunty: ….no dad! Actually I am talking about the payment which u had told me to pay.
Father: ohhh! So you paid that. right???
Son: Of course yes dad. U had told me only one thing to do during one week. How couldn’t I.
Father: Oh good. How much was it to pay??
Bunty: It was 1000 with 10% of interest.
Father: ok ok! (with a little smile) So how much did u pay dear…See! U don’t mind plz… becoz i know your mathematics is not as weak as i thought…. I know you must have paid some….
Son: 10010 Rs. only. (A huge smile showing his overconfidence)
Father: (socked)…10010??? and that is “only”. Oh I think u r mistaken to speak. it should be 1100 Rs. ONLY.
Bunty: Dad! Don’t confuse me. It was u who said to pay the cash in installments. Didn’t you say that?
Father: Of course I said. but……
Bunty: What but?? If I had not paid the money at the correct time YOUR “but” would have been MY “injured BUTT”.
Father: (shouting) Shut up! Now tell me how the hell you paid such a big amount instead of paying 1100Rs.
Bunty: (feared) Actually I learnt the formula of calculating the percentage. I had to pay 1000 with 10% of interest. Means
Bunty: So i thought to pay it in 2 installments….1st- I paid by multiplying 1000 by 10 (1000*10) that is 10000 Rs. only. And second I Paid by dividing 1000 by 100 (1000/100) that is 10 Rs. only.
(Father had no words instead of saying “Only”).
