We Are Even
(A Nasreddin Hodja Story)
One day, Hodja went to Turkish bath but nobody paid him much attention. They gave him an old bath robe and a towel. Hodja said nothing and on his way out he left a big tip. A week later, when he went back to the same bath, he was very well received. Everybody tried to help him and offered him extra services. On his way out, he left a very small tip.
"But, Hodja," they said,
"Is it fair to leave such a small tip for all the attention and extra services you received?"
"Today's tip is for last week's services and last week's tip was for today's services. Now we are even."
