Once a Thief Always a Thief

Jack stole the rabbi's gold watch and afterwards began to feel guilty about what he did. After a sleepless night, he went to see the rabbi

"Rabbi, I stole a gold watch," Jack admitted sheepishly.

"But Jack, that's forbidden," replied the Rabbi. "You should return it immediately!"

"What shall I do?"

"Give it back to the owner," answered the Rabbi.

"Do you want it," asked Jack slyly.

"No, I said return it to its owner."

"But he doesn't want it," said Jack.

"In that case Jack," pronounced the Rabbi, "you can keep it."
