The balance is broken.

The paperman was taking away our old newspapers when I noticed the plate of his electronic scale slightly tilted. I asked him what happened. I remembered a year ago he was beaming with pride that he had saved enough money to buy it. He cleared his throat and said that a few weeks ago, he went to a house to collect old papers. When he had gone back to his push cart to collect some bags, his customer, a grown adult, tried to check his weight on the scale and broke it.

The electronic scale is small for the use of weighing papers and any intelligent adult should have been able to judge that it may not take heavy weights. Not only that, that man did not ask for permission whether he could check his weight.

The paperman had to spend Rs.600 to fix his scale.
