We are even

One day, Nasreddin Hodja goes to a Turkish bath. As he is offered an old towel and a robe, he is upset that nobody is paying attention to him. He says nothing but leaves a hefty tip at the counter while returning.

A week later, he goes back and is very well received this time. He is given a royal treatment and is also provided extra services. Hodja is happy but hardly leaves any tip.

Everyone is surprised and curious to know why Hodja left just a small tip this time.

He says, “Today’s tip is for the services offered during the last visit. And the tip given then was for today. We are even now.”
