“He’ll pay for this!” He grumbled to himself.
The following day Abu went to the palace bringing a plate to meet the king. He covered the plate with a napkin. When he was in front of the king, he said, “Your majesty, these creatures have stolen my food.” After saying that Abu took up the napkin and some flies flew away from the plate.
“Do you mean the flies have stolen your food?” asked the king as he was laughing after knowing what Abunawas did.
“Yes, Your Majesty. So, please, give me an order letter for hunting flies.”
Abu’s request seemed ridiculous to the king. Anyway, he gave an order letter to Abu. After having the letter, Abunawas started hunting for flies in the market.

“Abu, based on the sellers’ report, you did a very crazy thing. You damaged the fruits of these sellers. Is it right?” asked the king.
“No, I didn’t, Your majesty.” Abu answered calmly, “I just hit the flies,” Abu continued. “You gave me this letter, didn’t you, Your Majesty?!” (Also read other article at : Perbedaan antara Internet Mobile dan SMS Banking)
