Einstein was asked to speak at an important science conference.
On his way there, he tells his driver that looks a lot like him:
“I’m so sick of all these conferences. I always say the same things over and over again!”
The driver agrees: “You’re right. As your driver, I’ve attended all of them, and even though I don’t know anything about science, I could probably give the same lecture in your place.”
“You know, that’s an excellent idea!” says Einstein. “Let’s switch places!”
So, they exchanged clothes in the car as soon as they arrived. The driver now dressed as Einstein eventually goes up on stage once the conference begins and starts giving the usual speech, while the real Einstein, now dressed as his car driver, takes a seat amongst the audience a few rows back.
Sitting not too far from him is one scientist who is so jealous of Einstein that he decides to impress everyone by thinking of a very difficult question to ask, believing the overly brainy lecturer won’t be able to answer. When he stands up and interrupts the conference by posing his extremely challenging question, the whole room goes eerily silent, holding their breath, waiting for his response.
The driver dressed as Einstein then looks directly at the scientist, dead in the eye, and says:
“Sir, I’ve decided your question is SO easy to answer that I’m going to let my driver answer it for me…”
Peace, love, light, and joy,
