Don't Try to be Clever, and Cheat your Mother

Alright, it happened in Singapore last Wednesday.


Mom came to visit her son Kumar, who lives with a girl housemate Sunita. They have dinner together at home.


During the course of the meal, his mother couldn't help but notice how pretty Sunita is.


She had long been suspicious of a relationship between the two, and this had only made her more curious.

Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between Kumar and his roommate than met the eye.

Reading his mom's thoughts, Kumar volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, Sunita and I are just housemates."

About a week later, Sunita came to Kumar saying, "Ever since your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the silver plate. You don't suppose she took it, do you?"

Kumar said ,"Well, I doubt it, but I'll email her, just to be sure."

So he sat down and wrote:

Dear Mother:

I'm not saying that you 'did' take the silver plate from my house,
I'm not saying that you 'did not' take the silver plate.
But the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.

Love, Kumar

A few hours later, Kumar received an email from his Mother which read,

Dear Son:

I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with Sunita,

and I'm not saying that you 'do not' sleep with Sunita.
But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her OWN bed, she would have found the silver plate by now under the pillow...


Lesson of the day: Don't Ever Lie to Your Mother. She Is Always Smarter Than You Think.

Man or rather many amongst big man face more than a woman in life!

How to trust and trustworthiness could change with times and age as man grow.

More than a women (plural) come into life...and is a time to put it to wisdom rather who's who and which's which is true or truthful.

For sure that one spirit,soul and body must always in balance.Then listen to WORDS from inner heart as each step may have different course and direction.

Truth is for everything but Man always search beyond it!
