VK. Krishna Menon, onetime Defence Minister, was a bachelor and hated people with large broods of children. In his early career as a barrister, a neighbour couple with three girls in tow called on him and suggested that he accompany them to the theatre as they had an extra ticket. The sixsome waited for a bus, and the first one had only room for four (no overloading). The second one came after five minutes and had only three vacancies, and the third had two. So they decided to walk the distance instead of being late for the show.
Menon was tramping on the cobblestones on the pavement, tuck tucking with his walking stick. The father, already irritated with not getting the bus, remarked, 'Dammit, Krishna, can't you put a piece of rubber at the end of your stick?'
Pat came the reply: 'If you had put one at the end of yours we would have got into a bus.'
