Bag



Three officers of the bomb disposal squad walked towards the bag abandoned on the railway platform. They opened it and found some clothes and two soft toys inside.

Just then, a young guy of twenty arrived there, “Hey, that’s my bag.”

The officers signalled, and two uniformed policemen grabbed the guy’s wrists.

“So the bombs are in these teddy bears?”

“No. Those are for my sister. It’s her birthday.”

Ignoring his plea, the officers tore apart the toys, only to find cotton inside.

Meanwhile, in the nearby town, a little girl awaited her birthday gift – her favourite teddy bears.

  1. What a bummer for the guy and the little girl. Sad statement on the way the world thinks these days, but better safe than sorry though in this case safe leads to sorry.
