Cerita 1 : Do Everything at Once

Nasreddin was working for a rich man. One day his master called him and said : Nasreddin, com on in. Nasreddin came in and sat in a chair. His master said further : You are a very good man. But it's a pity that you are so slow in doing anything. You never do something at once. If I, for example, ask you to buy three eggs, you will go to the shop and go home with one egg. Then you go for the second egg and so forth.

I am sorry, Sir, I'm a fool. I won't do the same thing again in the future. I'll do everything at once.
Several days later, his master was sick. Nasreddin was asked to get a doctor. When he came back, his master was surprised because he did not only get a doctor, but also many other men. He brought all into his master's bedroom. 

Excuse me, Sir. I got them already, he said.
Got them ? who are they ? I just asked you to get a doctor, asked his master. 
Then Nasreddin explained, excuse me, Sir. A doctor usually gives us a prescription. Here I get a medicine man who will make the medicine prescribed for you. And the medicine man, of course, will make the medicine from roots and plants. Here I get someone who sells the ingredients for such medicine. I also get a coal seller, because usually we boil the medicine first. And it needs coal.

Who is the last ? said the master. He saw one more person in the room that had not been introduced yet. There is also a possibility that the doctor cannot help us. You may die. So I get a grave digger, Sir, I do it at once.

Cerita 2 : Sorry, I'm Wrong 

One evening Nasreddin attended a party in his town. The party ended at 10 o'clock at night. It was a long distance from the place where the party was held to Nasreddin's house. If Nasreddin took the usual street, he would have come home very late. So, Nasreddin took a shortcut through a cemetery.

When he was in the middle of the cemetery, he saw a group of people riding horses toward him. Nasreddin thought that they were robbers who just started their robbery. As he was afraid of them, he ran and hid in a newly dug grave. The grave would be used to bury a corpse the next morning.

The group of horsemen saw a head stuck out from a grave. They were curious and stopped beside the grave.
How are you ?, said one of them.
Nasreddin turned round to see the men. He answered,
Don't worry, I'm one of the dead bodies buried here.
Can a dead body wake up at night ? asked the man again.
What for ?
To get fresh air, Nasreddin answered.
Then men laughed together. One of them said, Do dead men need air ?
Yes, you are right. Sorry, I'm wrong, Nasreddin answered. He lay down again in the grave.

Kosa kata :
Come on in -- masuklah
further -- lagi/berikutnya
Do something at once -- melakukan sesuatu sekaligus
Prescription -- resep
a shortcut -- jalan pintas
stuck out -- terjebak
