Many lessons can be learnt from this short story.  Summarising as follows:

1) Accept that a mistake is made and do not make justifications.  Just swallow the bitter pill and be cured of negligence and careless.

2) Do not try to blame others and make nice long stories that waste time to rectify the situation.

3) Be effective clear concerns for others who had been the ones who suffered from our mistakes.

4) Integrity also is shown by the cook, who showed honesty and took the whole blame.

Simple story but loads of learning.  So much part of practising lojong.
