Clever, wise, genius—these words are appropriate for those who can think of ways of resolving the most difficult and seemingly hopeless situations in life. It’s an admirable trait, and if these people would use that gift to help other people, then this world would probably become a better place for us.

But what if these people use their intellect to take advantage of those who are not as smart as they are? What should we call them then?

Read the story and tell us what you think:

A young man named Chuck bought a horse from a farmer for $250. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day.

The next day, the farmer drove up to Chucks house and said, “Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died.”

Chuck replied, “Well, then just give me my money back.”

The farmer said, “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.”

Chuck said, “Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.”

The farmer asked, “What ya gonna do with him?”

Chuck said, “I’m going to raffle him off.”

The farmer said, “You can’t raffle off a dead horse!”

Chuck said, “Sure I can, Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.”

A month Later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, “What happened with that dead horse?”

Chuck said, “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at five dollars a piece and made a profit of $2,495.”

The farmer said, “Didn’t anyone complain?”

Chuck said, “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his five dollars back.”

Chuck grew up and now works for the government.
