Running in Empty

Itzik Smadar was locked out of his Tel Aviv apartment and he was extremely tired after a 20 hour shift so he decided to just park somewhere quiet and sleep.

As luck would have it, the quiet place he chose happened to be on one of Tel Aviv’s major jogging routes. After only a couple of hours, Itzik was woken up by a knock on his window. He looked out and saw a jogger running in place.


"Do you have the time?" the jogger asked.

Itzik looked at his car clock and answered, "5:30".

The jogger said thanks and left. Itzik settled back again, and was just dozing off when there was another knock on the window and another jogger.

"Do you have the time?"


The jogger said thanks and left. Now Itzik could see other joggers passing by and he knew it was only a matter of time before another one disturbed him. To avoid the problem, he got out a pen and paper and put a sign in his window saying, "I do not know the time!"

Once again he settled back to sleep. He was just dozing off when there was another knock on the window.

"It’s 6:00! And don’t sleep in your car!"
