You made a mistake. And they made it too.

They were three young boys. All of them in their adolescence.

One fine day, they got caught while stealing watermelons. They were taken to the court.

Facing the judge, they started expecting for the worst, for he was known to be a strict man. However, he was also a wise educator. Soon after a rap of his gavel he asked “Any man in the room who never stole a single fruit when he was a boy, raise his hand.” He waited. The court officials, policemen, and spectators (including the judge himself) – kept their hands on the desk in front of them.

When he was satisfied that not a single hand was raised in the court, the judge said, “Case Dismissed.”
