i think it is priceless, we let our true feelings known to kin and even though he was a bit mad, he was not happy about paying for another driving test, as he said to get the same answer,

i got the test on the second go,
and when my older child was doing her test, she said she would not fail, and that i would be the only person in the house with a fail first time round,
i then asked them to bet on it, and we agreed 100e,
i went with her as far as test centre and went off down town to kill time while she was out doing her test, i did carry the 100e in my pocket hoping to be handing it over,
but lo and behold when test was over and i asked the result, she had failed, i just put out the open palm, and took it, but i took her for lunch on it, a bet was a bet after all,
she picked on me for a time before the test just because i failed first time round,
i did not say anything to her after hers, i knew how she felt, i had felt the same when i failed, i hated the thought of having to go through the same thing all over again than the price of the thing,
so i applied for it for her and in we went six months later, she did not ask to bet on it that time, at least i lost nothing on the first bet and it paid for her second test, she passed it and was happy

Is this one of the lesser known Aesop's Fables?

Yes. My Dad can only go 3 words without swearing. His record is 7 non swearing words in a row, but only cos we made him do it. There were a lot of breaks in that sentence!
