Once upon a time there lived a poor shoemaker. He was very sad because as he grew old he could not see all that well anymore and, consequently he could not work like he used to.
One night he went to bed depressed, without finishing a repair job he had begun. In the morning he found the job done, and he was very confused by this.
That day, he took out all the tools and material necessary to make a new pair of shoes for a rich customer.
