A beggar and his sponsor


A man walks past a beggar every day and gives him RM10 and that continued for a year. Then suddenly the daily donation changesd to RM5.

" Well," the beggar thinks, " it's still better than nothing."

A year passed in this way until the man's daily donation suddenly became RM1.

" What's going on now?" the beggar asked his donor. " First you give me RM10 every day, then RM5 and now only RM1. What's the problem?"

" Well," the man said, " last year my eldest son went to university. It's very expensive, so I had to cut costs. This year my eldest daughter also went to university, so I had to cut my expenses even further ."

" And how many children do you have?" the beggar asked.

" Four," the man replied.

" Well," said the beggar, " I hope you don't plan to educate them all at my expense"
