Getting Fooled for Kindness

It was pouring and a big puddle had formed in front of the pub. A ragged old man stood there with a rod, hanging a string into the puddle. A curious gentleman walked over to him and asked what he was doing.
‘Fishing,’ the old man said simply.
‘Poor old fool,’ the gentleman thought, and invited the ragged old man to a dinner in a five-star hotel.
While they ate their lavish dinner, just to strike up a conversation the gentleman asked, ‘And how many have you caught?’ ‘You’re the tenth,’ the old man answered.
Message: Don’t allow your kindness to be exploited.
