Wait until it gets you

One day Nasrudin was carrying plate of food to a needy man. A loutish joker tripped him up, and the Mulla lost his temper.
‘For that,’ he roared, ‘something terrible will happen to you!’
This startled the joker, who tripped over a rock and twisted his ankle. Feeling sorry for himself and repentant too, at such immediate punishment, he called out; ‘I am sorry, Nasrudin; but you see, I have had my deserts.’
‘Not at all,’ replied the Mulla smoothly, ‘that must have been a requital for one of your lesser misdeeds. When my curse hits you, you will be in no fit state even to apologise.’
