THE RABBI AND THE TAILOR

There's an old story about a Jewish tailor who met a rabbi on his way

out of the synagogue:

Rabbi: Well, and what have you been doing in the synagogue?

Tailor: I was saying my prayers Rabbi.

Rabbi: Fine, and did you confess your sins?

Tailor: Yes, Rabbi, I confessed my little sins.

Rabbi: Your little sins?

Tailor: Yes, I confessed, that sometimes I cut cloth on the short side and cheat on a yard of wool by a couple of inches.

Rabbi: You said that to God?

Tailor: Yes, Rabbi, and more. I said "Lord, I cheat on pieces of cloth; You let little babies die. But I am going to make you a deal. You forgive my little sins, and I'll forgive Your big ones."
