Mr Silva and Mr. Perera are very good friends. One Sunday evening they are having a
beer at Silva's place.
These gentlemen, being bachelors still, kept servants to maintain the house and also to
run errands for them.
After few rounds of drinks, their topic of discussion turned to servants. Mr. Perera says
to Mr. Silva,
"I say Mr. Silva, I think my servant Banda should be the most foolish servant in the world."
"Come on Mr. Perera, I will eat my head if you can prove that Banda is more foolish than
my servant Junda."
"Okay, okay we'll see". And Mr. Silva calls Banda and handed him 10 Rupees and tells,
"Banda, you go to the Toyota dealer at the corner of the street and buy me a new Camry
"Certainly, Sir" and off goes Banda.
"You see Mr. Perera, how foolish is my servant"
"Huh!, you say that is foolish, wait till you see my servant" and more...
One day an edlderly customer presented a cheque to the paying counter where I was working as a cashier.
His name was MR.. .... Perera.
While scrutinizing the cheque I found every thing is in order but the cheque was drawn in favour of Perera and sons. As a practice in Sri Lanka, an individual cannot cash such cheques over the counter.
So, I explained very politely to the presenter.
" Mr. Perera, this cheque is for Perera and sons, not for you "
" That's right, my three sons also here"
