Сказка Economy Waisted - Вредная экономия
A young Englishman wanted to go to New York. He had little money about him. He booked a ticket and decided to do without meals. On the first day he walked along the deck, looked at the sea and enjoyed his voyage.
When the companions went to the restaurant, he stayed on deck saying he was not hungry. On the second day he did not go to the restaurant either. On the third day the young man got so hungry that he said to himself: "I'm going to eat even if they throw me overboard." He ate and drank everything with great appetite. When he finished with his dessert, he said bravely to the waiter:
"How much do I owe you?" Great was his surprise when the waiter answered: "Nothing, sir. On the ship meals are included in the cost of your ticket." That was the last day of the mans sea voyage.
