The man was waiting for his wife outside the shop when he saw the coin-operated weighing machine that could tell weight and prophesize future too.
He fished out a quarter out of his pocket and carefully stepped on to the large-sized platform – it was not easy with an arm in a sling.
He inserted the coin and stood still. Wheels whirred, lights flashed, matter weighed, time traveled and finally a small white card gently and noiselessly slipped out of a slot, pronouncing the final assessment taking all facts and some into account.
As the wife joined him, he proudly flashed the card: “I’m better appreciated in certain quarters. Look at this,” he said reading out the card to his wife, “It says I’m energetic, bright and resourceful. And a break is sure to come my way soon.”
“Yeah”, his wife nodded, “I see it has your weight wrong, too…and, for the break – you had yours last week.”
