Overflowing with excitement, they rented all the equipment needed for a fishing adventure. The rented fishing essentials such as reels, the rods, the wading suits, and the rowboat.
Aside from the fishing gear, the two men rented a car and booked a four-day stay at a cabin in the woods. They did not expect it would turn out to be an expensive and costly escapade.

On their first day of fishing, the experience did not turn out to be as promising as they expected it to be. They failed to catch a single fish.
The next day, they exerted all effort to catch a fish, but they returned to their cabin empty-handed. Although disappointed, they remained hopeful that their luck would turn around the next day.

On their third day, they set out determined to haul out plenty of fish from the sea. They rolled up their sleeves for hard work. Unfortunately, fish remained elusive.
On the last day of their trip, one of them finally caught a fish. They had a momentary surge of joy. But while driving back home, the two men felt bothered and were in low spirits.

They were quiet. When they were already far from their rented cabin, one of them, filled with negative thoughts, broke his silence.
"Do you realize that this one lousy fish we caught cost us fifteen hundred bucks?" he said. Then the other man said, "Wow! Then it's a good thing we didn't catch any more!"
