Short stories

Com 14 anos foi apanhado sem bilhete , no autocarro e o fiscal, levou-o esquadra para ser identificado e pagar multa. Como não tinha dinheiro para pagar a totalidade, polícia ficou de ir lá a casa, cobrar.
Passados uns dias, em casa, tocaram porta e Pedro foi abrir.
Era um polícia e ele viu logo do que se tratava.
À pergunta do polícia:
-O Sr. Pedro Miguel da Cunha Taborda, está?
Pedro respondeu:
-Ah! É o meu irmão, mas está fora de Lisboa.
Polícia nunca mais apareceu e livrou-se assim de pagar a multa.

Short stories:

At age 14 he was caught at a bus without a ticket and the agent took him to the police station to be identified and pay a fine. Since he didn’t had enough money, the police was supposed to collect it later at his house.

After a few days, at home, someone knocked at the door and Pedro opened it, since it was the police. He was sure about what concerned this visit.

The policeman asked – is Pedro Miguel Tavares da Cunha Taborda here?

To which Pedro replied – oh, that’s my brother, mas he’s not even in Lisbon.

He was certainly very convincing since no one showed up again and no fine was paid…
