An accountant in a big firm had a very strange habit. Every morning he used to open his drawer, look at a paper and then lock the drawer again. The trainees were very curious and thought of his success is hidden on that paper in his drawer. So one day, when the accountant was out, the trainees decided to break the lock, whn they broke the lock & took out the paper, it was written on the paper:

my friend asked me
why debit is in while credit is out?
because debit on left side and credit on right side
(if thinking logically , our right hand to take while left to give)
i really don’t have the answer
then i said to her
“WHY NOT YOU ASK THE QUESTION TO THE FATHER OF ACCOUNT AND ASK HIM WHY?”
P/S: sometimes, we have to accept the thing without to think of why. SIMPLE.June 17, 2013 at 3:01 pm #132573angelamyangel
That secret in the drawers is a necessary one indeed.

Thank you very much; I’m in a depressive moode – not working for ALMOST eighty months and decided to view the joke – It’s the best. Pure laughter and I’ll assume that this accountant is helping is sorbornates to identifies errors or accounts to be investigated from the trail balance. It is FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!!August 25, 2016 at 3:25 pm #335164mike009

I was told….. relate most entries back to the cashbook via CID and COC (????) ….. (cash in debit) and (cash out credit) then the other side of your double entry will be correct. Stuck with me for years.May 14, 2018 at 10:11 am #451842carlm21
