Once there was a bus conductor, who was very rude to
his passengers.

One day a beautiful young girl, of around 18 years,
tried to board the
bus,
but he didn't stop the bus. Unfortunately the
beautiful young girl came
under the bus and died on the spot. Angry passengers
took the conductor
to
the police station, who in turn took him to the court.

The judge was not at all impressed with him and gave
him
capitalpunishment.
He was taken to the electrocution chamber. There was a
singlechair in
the
center of the room and a single banana peel at one
cornerof´┐Ż the room.
The conductor was strapped to the chair and high
voltagecurrent was
given to him.
But to everyone's amazement, he survived. Thejudge
decided to set him
free,
and he returned to his profession. A couple of months
later,
an elderly gentleman tried to board the bus.
This time the conductor, remembering his earlier
experi ences, stopped
the bus.
Unfortunately the elderly gen tleman slipped and died
due to is
injuries.
The conductor was taken to the police station and then
to the court, to
the
same judge. Though he hadn't done anything wrong, but
considering his
past
record the judge decided to set an example and gave
him capital
punishment.
The conductor was again taken to the same
electrocution chamber where
there
was a single chair in the center of the room and a
single banana peel
at one
corner of the room. He was strapped to the chair and
high voltage
current
was given to him. This time he died instantly
The question is why didn't he die on the first
occasion, but died
instantly
the next time??

He died because he was a "good conductor" this time. Previously he was a bad conductor so electricity did not pass through him

After seeing a beautiful girl around 18 years, the condutor didnt stop the bus. What is wrong here? If he is a man he should have definitely stop the bus. May be he has blind eyes and with shock treatement he got eyesight back.

Banana peel in the room? what is the significane of banana peel in the room?
