Strength in numbers, not brains

When things get too tangled between two people, a little intervention might help clear things up. But sometimes it’s best to let them work it out on their own.

On a busy street of the capital city last Thursday, residents’ siestas were disrupted when they heard a woman’s scream: “Help! He’s trying to steal my phone!”

The scream was coming from a young woman dressed in a white shirt and a black mini skirt, directed at a middle-aged, bald man who looked old enough to be her uncle.

Thank God it was a busy street, as by-passers immediately rushed to the rescue and started beating the man, while the woman kept searching his pocket for her phone.

And thank God our antagonist was not so much of a scoundrel. Showing no signs of resistance, he fell on his knees to avoid receiving more fists as his mouth started to bleed.

Putting the palms of his hands together in the Buddhist gesture of respect, he uttered pleas not to get beaten again, which were interlaced with the four words none of our heroes had expected to hear from a thief:

“She is my wife,” he said.

“I thought she was having an affair, so I snatched her phone to check her calls and messages.” — VNS
