Acquiring the latest electronic gadget or the trendiest model of car on the market is said to be the aspiration of every boy (nowadays even girl). This according to the psychologists is because he would not have outgrown his craving for new toys from his childhood.
Most of the men are able to realize this dream of theirs, thanks to the comfortable economic scene in India. Our hero was one such. As he climbed the rungs of the corporate ladder, he kept changing his old cars to new ones.
One such car was ready for disposal. His conscience (and his business acumen too!) would not let him sell it ‘as is, where is’. He meticulously made a list of all the defects caused due to wear and tear. He took the car and the list to the garage and asked the mechanics to see that every single defect was repaired and rectified.
The car came back from the garage as good as new. Soon, a buyer materialized and demanded to take the car for a test drive. Our man was all confidence. He was sure the buyer would come back all impressed with his car.
Just imagine his surprise when the buyer got down from the car holding the piece of paper, in his hand, in which all the defects had been listed for the mechanics to rectify and which had been left by mistake in the glove compartment of the car to be sold! What a priceless document for the buyer!!!
