Strategy vs. Tactics!

Ahmed and Hamid are both beggars at several motorway services in England.

Ahmed drives a Mercedes, lives in a mortgage free house and has a lot of money to spend.

Hamid only brings in 2 to 3 pounds a day.

Hamid asks Ahmed how he manages to bring home a suitcase full of £10 notes every day?!

Ahmed says, "Look at your sign. It says, 'I have no work, a wife and six kids to support.' Britons who see that do not feel as if they have accomplished anything by giving you money. You will still have no job and a large family! Now look at my sign."

So Hamid looks up and Ahmed's sign reads: "I only need another £10 to move back to Pakistan"

Let this be another lesson in thinking out of the box to solve your everyday 'problems'.
