A shepherd was herding his flock when a BMW driver approached him. A conversation ensued between the duo, and the details of their discussion were surprising.

The driver, a young man dressed in a Hugo Boss suit and Gucci shoes with perfect Ray-Ban sunglasses and a tie, stuck his head out of his window and started a conversation with the shepherd.

The man asked the shepherd, "If I can tell you exactly how many sheep you have in your flock, will you give me one?" Looking at the delusional man and back at his flock, the shepherd replied in the affirmative.

The young driver parked his car and began a series of activities. He brought out his laptop, connected it to a mobile phone and an online GPS satellite navigation system, and took a scan of the surroundings.

After he was done, the man opened up a database with Excel which had complicated equations. Finally, he pointed out a report that had 150 pages on his small modeled printer.

Next, the BMW driver moved to the shepherd and told him he had 1,586 sheep. Impressed by his level of technicality, the shepherd noted that the man was correct.


As agreed, the young man was given the liberty to select any sheep of his choice. The shepherd observed while the driver took his preferred selection to his sleek BMW.

After the driver finished, the shepherd said to him, "If I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me my property back?" It was a fair request, and the driver agreed.


The shepherd told the man he was a consultant. Amazed, the driver noted that the answer was correct. He was eager to know the reason behind Shepherd's guess.

The shepherd admitted that it was easy. He explained that the driver turned up uninvited, requested to be paid to answer a question that was never asked, and gave already-known information.

Most importantly, the driver did not have any idea about the shepherd's business. Perplexed, the man asked the shepherd how he concluded. Then, the shepherd told the driver that he took his dog.
