Nasrudin owed his cousin money, but avoided him for weeks. Finally, their paths crossed one day.
"I know you've been avoiding me," said the cousin, "but alas-we have finally run into each other. So how about the two hundred dollars you owe me?

"Well," the cousin replied-"actually, I have to get going. Just leave me alone."
