An old man was selling Watermelons. His price-list reads: 1 for $3 and 3 for $10

A young man stopped by and bought 3 watermelons one by one paying $3 for each.

As the young man was walking away, he turn around and said:

“Hey Old man, do you realise I just bought three watermelons for $9 instead of $10? May be business is not you thing.”

The Old man smiled and mumbled to himself:

“People are funny. Every time they buy three watermelons instead of one, yet they keep trying to teach me how to do business…”


Beyond the business lesson, this story just reminded me how sometimes it is better to just keep quiet and smile.
