A homeless man who always wanted to become a teacher gets his wishes when he used a brand new van as a white board. What does the owner do?

Writing on a Van

A young man from the country side got a new job in the city. The job paid him an exorbitant salary so he took it. Within a month he bought a brand new ‘4x4 van.’ The young man parked it outside his office and went to work.

There was a friendly neighbourhood vagrant who always wanted to become a teacher. Upon seeing the ‘4x4 van’ he got excited and thought this was his opportunity to teach. "Yes I know the answer," he said to him self. I know that 4x4 = 16" Very quickly he took up a sharp object and scratching off the paint on the van he wrote, ‘equal 16.’

The owner of the van came downstairs and saw the painting on his new van ruined. He was very disturbed by what he saw! “I am going to paint it again,” he said. The following day he came to work with his van painted in a bright pink colour. ‘What a lovely paint job,’ he thought.

However, as the young man left the van and headed to his office, the same homeless man from the previous day approached his van. He jumped up and down excitedly, “I have another chance to become a teacher! My dreams are being fulfilled!” He quickly read what he saw written on the van, “4x4!” He jumped up and down excitedly clapping his hands. Then he picked up a sharp stone and wrote on the man’s newly painted van, ‘equal sixteen.’

Upon his return to the van the young man became furious when he saw his van scratched again. “Who would be so evil to do this crazy thing,” he thought. He hurried to the paint shop and got his van painted in a bright yellow. However, he asked the painter to inscribe 4x4 = 16 with hope the madness would not happen again. “Now this mad man would not scratch on my van! I got him this time. He! He! He! He! He! He! He! He!”

The next day the young man parked his van in the same spot but was confident it would not be scratched this time since he thought he outwitted the trickster. The vagrant came dancing and was shocked to see the van in a bright yellow colour. He became quite excited when he saw, 4x4=16 written in a bright red paint on the van. “Yes! Yes! Yes!” he shouted as he jumped up and down clapping his hands. The homeless man took up a sharp stone and gracefully scratched on the van, ‘correct A+.’   
