The Smart Vendor Story

Once upon a time, a sly and cunning vendor always tried to outsmart his customers. A young boy approached him to buy some ripe and juicy berries from his cart one day. 

The Smart Vendor

The boy noticed that the vendor had given him fewer berries. Sensing something was amiss, the boy questioned the vendor, “Why are you giving me fewer berries?” The vendor answered, “The lesser the berries, the easier for you to carry. Now give me the money.”
