Crazy But Not Stupid

By: R.Hundoo.

One truck driver was doing his usual load delivery at a mental hospital, by parking his vehicle beside an open drain.

He discovered a flat Tire when he was about to return from the mental hospital. He jacked up the truck and removed the flat Tire to fix the spare Tire.

When he was about to fix the spare Tire, he accidentally dropped all the four bolts in the open drain.

As he cannot fish the bolts in the open drain, he started to panic as to what should be done?

Just then, one patient happened to walk past him and asked the driver as to why he was looking troubled.

The driver thought to himself, since there is nothing much he can do or this mental joker can. Just to keep the bugging away, the truck driver informed the whole episode to the mental patient and gave a helpless look.

The patient just laughed at the truck driver and said you just cannot even fix such a simple problem? No wonder you are destined to remain a truck driver for life.

The truck driver was astonished to hear such a compliment from a mental guy.

Here is what you can do said the mental guy.

Take one bolt from each of the remaining three Tire’s/wheels and fix it on to this Tire. Then drive down to the nearest workshop and replace the missing ones. Isn’t it simple my friend!!!!

The truck driver was so impressed with this quick fix answer and asked the patient, how come you are so smart and intelligent and you are here at the mental hospital?

The patient replied…hello friend! I stay here because I am crazy but not stupid.

No wonder, there are some people, who behave like the Truck Driver, thinking that others are just stupid. So, guys, though you all are learned and wise, but, just watch out, there could be some CRAZY guys in our professional / personal lives, who could give us lot of quick fixes and brush our wisdom.

The moral of the story is – Just do not conclude that you know everything and do not judge people by mere looks/attire stature or academic background.

    Looks do not matter and we need to respect others and their views/opinions..there may be a wealth of knowledge at places we least expect

    @ Shammi – Fully agree, we should never underestimate others, and always open minded to learn from least expected people πŸ™‚
