Nasruddin and his wife returned home after a long journey to find that robbers had broken into their home and stolen everything.
Of course, everyone had their own opinion about what had happened.
"You probably forgot to lock the door!" Nasruddin's wife exclaimed.
"I told you to put bars on the windows!" said a friend.
"Leaving the house unattended for such a long time is very risky!" observed a neighbor.
Everyone chimed in, and they all blamed Nasruddin.
Finally, Nasruddin couldn't take it anymore and shouted, "Is there no one here who will put the blame on the actual robbers?"

Notes: This is story 106 in the book. This is a good story to remember when you are blaming yourself for something that happened which was not really your fault at all. :-)
