What a sweet life honey!

I know it is wise to keep my mouth shut, but I never learn.
My friend entered the room wearing a new T-shirt and I said, “Looks great.”
“Oh, this is a branded one. Not like the ones you buy on roadside shops,” he snapped.
Some people do get overwhelmed by materialistic superiority. They hardly realise that most such pleasures are short-lived.
Have you heard this beautiful story?
A man, chased by a tiger, ran for his life. He was about to fall into a deep pit. Fortunately, a rope came in handy and he clung on to it. When he looked down, he was stunned to see snakes curling along. Above, the tiger waited for him. Adding to his woes, a rat began nibbling the rope. Just then, a drop of honey fell on his mouth from a honeycomb above. “Wowww,” he enjoyed the taste of honey, forgetting that his death was seconds away.
Another lesson I need to learn is to ignore fools.
It was a one-way path. Two guys stopped in the middle. “I do not leave way for idiots,” said one.
“I do,” said another and moved back with a smile.
