Clothes and judgement

One day Nasruddin went to a banquet. As he was dressed rather shabbily, no one let him in. So he ran home, put on his best robe and fur coat and returned. Immediately, the host came over, greeted him and ushered him to the head of an elaborate banquet table. When the food was served, Nasruddin took some soup with spoon and pushed it to the his fur coat and said, Eat my fur coat, eat! It's obvious that you're the real guest of honor today, not me

Its very true that people like to judge someone by his appearance/car. When i was driving my MPV, people at the hotels welcomed me by opening the door and taking the luggage. But if i were to drive my small 'kancil', i have to do that all alone...

This one has the ring of being quite old. More of a parable than a joke. Definitely has a lot of truth today as then, I'm sure.
