Thinking out of the box

A truck driver was doing his usual load delivery at a mental hospital, by parking his vehicle beside an open drain. He discovered a flat tyre when he was about to return from the mental hospital. He jacked up the truck and removed the flat tyre to fix the spare tyre. When he was about to fix the spare tyre, he accidentally dropped all the 4 bolts in the open drain. As he could not fish the bolts in the open drain, he started to panic as to what should be done?
Just then, a patient happened to walk past him and asked the driver as to why he was looking troubled. The driver thought to himself, since there is nothing much he can do or this mental joker can. Just to keep the bugging away, the truck driver informed the whole episode to the mental patient and gave a helpless look.
The patient just laughed at the truck driver and said you just cannot even fix such a simple problem? No wonder you are destined to remain a truck driver for life".
The truck driver was astonished to hear such a compliment from a mental guy.
"Here is what you can do" said the mental guy. "Take one bolt from each of the remaining 3 tyres / wheels and fix it on to this tyre. Then drive down to the nearest workshop and replace the missing ones. Isnt it simple my friend".
The truck driver was so impressed with this quick fix answer and asked the patient "how come you are so smart and intelligent and you are here at the mental hospital?"
The patient replied, "Hello friend! I stay here because I am crazy but not stupid."

No wonder, there are some people, who behave like the Truck Driver, thinking that others are just stupid. So, guys, though you all are learned and wise, but, just watch out, there could be some CRAZY guys in our professional / personal lives, who could give us lot of quick fixes and brush our wisdom.
The moral of the story: Just do not conclude that you know everything and do not judge people by mere looks / attire stature or academic background .

Unfortunately, a brother Rahal, despite scientific progress and technological openness and views, which subtracted from here and there and some overlap is still seen as the external landscape
Thanks for the story and there are stories every day in our lives similarly

Dear Rahal ...
now u show me how much I'd be foolish despite my scientific backgrounds and, outward appearances shown by,and the evidence of this that I did not find out this obvious solution contained on the tongue of the patient's mental ...
Anyway ... Accept my transit by this article and I hope that you accept me as pupils in this class
