The Perfume Seller's Parrot PDF Print E-mail

There was once a perfume seller. He owned a parrot which could talk.

The parrot would greet and speak to every customer who entered the shop. The customers were amazed and would come time and again to purchase perfume only to speak to the parrot.


One night the owner forgot to lock the parrot in the cage. The parrot heard a cat and panicked. It started flying around the shop knocking down all the perfume bottles and spilling the perfume. The next morning when the owner entered the shop he became angry and hit the parrot on the head until its hair fell out and it became bald.


From that day on the parrot did not speak a word. Customers would enter the shop and hope to hear the parrot saying something but the parrot would not speak. Slowly customers started coming less until the business eventually collapsed.


Lesson: We should value everyone as they could be the source of goodness for us.
