A little boy, son of an employee working in a German MNC, wanted Rs.50 very badly and prayed for weeks, But nothing happened.
Finally he decided to write a letter to the CXO of his dad's company, requesting Rs.50. When the Administration dept. received the letter addressed to CXO from a child, they decided to forward it to the GM – Finance, as a joke.
The General Manager was so amused, that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy Rs.20. He thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy, and he also did not want to spoil the kid.
The little boy was delighted with Rs.20, and decided to write a thank you note to CXO, which read:
"Dear Sir, Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that you sent it through your Finance Department in Chennai, and those inconsiderate guys deducted Rs.30 in taxes..."
Moral of the story: a person, known for certain diabolic actions will be always held responsible even when he is innocent and had no role to play in that particular event!
