Smart story for Final students... to handle any situation 'In ANY circumstances'...


An old Greek man lived alone in Marrickville. He wanted to dig his tomato garden, but it was hard work for his advanced years as the ground was very hard.His only son, Spiro, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his position.

"Dear Spiro,I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plantmy tomato garden this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up agarden plot. If you were here my troubles would be over. I know youwould dig the plot for me.Love Papa..."

A few days later he received a letter from his son.

"Dear Papa,Don't dig up the garden. That's where I buried the bodies.Love Spiro..."

At 4 A.M. the next morning, Federal agents and NSW Police arrived anddug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized tothe old man and left.

That same day the old man received another letterfrom his son.

"Dear Papa,Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I coulddo under the circumstances.Love Spiro..."
