Once a manager want to test the sense of understanding of their workers. He called all of his employees of unit at one place and asked to prove their intelligence. He kept a covered pot in front of the employees and said “There is a pot in front of you. Your task is to tell what is kept in side the pot.” All of the employees tried to sort out the asked trick. But they could not reach at possible solution.

Suddenly, an employee come forward, uncovered the pot and said “It is empty”. All of the employees began to laugh thinking that he is a stupid. But the manager said that he is a wise person. I asked you to tell the thing inside the pot but didn’t say that you could not open it.

Moral: Dont assume obstacles that dont exist. Take the things in same form as them come to you.
