One night a hotel caught fire, and the people who were staying in it ran out in their night clothes.
Two men stood outside and looked at the fire.
“Before I came out,” said one,“I ran into some of the rooms and found a lot of money.People don't think of money when they're afraid. When anyone leaves paper money in a fire, the fire burns it. So I took all the bills that I could find. No one will be poorer because I took them.”
“You don't know my work,” said the other.
“What is your work？”
“I'm a policeman.
“Oh！” cried the first man. He thought quickly and said,“And do you know my work？”“No,”said the policeman.
“I'm a writer. I'm always telling stories about things that never happened.”
