A servant who was paid three coins a day came to his master:
– Why do you give Kato 30 coins a day and me only three? he complained.
Then the owner:
– Come and find out what carriage is parked outside. The servant quickly ran out and said:
– A wagon loaded with grass is standing. Lord again:
– When was the grass mowed? Come when you know. The servant ran out again and said:
– He said it is the grass that was cut this summer. The Lord says again:
– Are you going to sell your grass? When he heard, the servant quickly ran away. Come:
– His Majesty, he is going to sell the grass. Lord smiled:
– How much will you sell it for? he asked again. While the servant was running out, Kato, the servant who was paid 30 coins the other day, came in.
– Sir, when I went to see a cart loaded with mowed hay outside our yard, it was mowed and dried this summer. And when I asked how much he was going to sell it for, he said five coins.
That’s why we need to buy grass this winter, so we decided to negotiate a price and bought it for three coins. And that’s why I came to get your permission.
The master nodded his agreement, and after Kato had left, he said to the servant who was holding him with the other complaint:
– Well, do you see? I tell you everything you need to do, I remind you, I ask you to do it. Kato, however, works proactively, so he does half of my work. He explained that a proactive and sincere person is worth more than 10 people like you.
