This is a story of clock.

Moral(s) of the story: carelessness and patience

One day, Nancy’s mother gave her the money to buy a clock from the market. She was a very hasty child and wanted to finish the work her mother had given her and go back to playing with her friends.

So, she went to a showroom and bought a beautiful clock. When she got back home, it was 12 o'clock in the afternoon and the hands of the clock were lined up together.

She thought that the clock only had one hand and was thus broken. She did not bother checking again and ran to the shopkeeper, thinking that he had given her a broken clock.

When she reached the shop, she said, “Uncle, one hand of this clock is missing. How could you give me a defective clock?”

When she and the shopkeeper looked at the clock, two hands of the clock were visible. The clock was working and Nancy realised that her accusation was wrong. She realized her folly, felt embarrassed and returned home.


Moral:

Do not do your work in haste, it only leads to errors. Verify before throwing blame.
