Mulla Nasrudin lived far beyond his means and was constantly hounded by his creditors. But he was so used to them that their presence caused him no distress. In fact, he treated them with the utmost courtesy.
Once he even served a bill collector champagne.
"If you cannot afford to pay your debts," the bill collector demanded, "how can you afford to serve champagne?"
"DON'T GET SORE," said Nasrudin, "I ASSURE YOU, THIS HASN'T BEEN PAID FOR EITHER, SIR."
