Situation puzzleA honeyman

Many people were surprised when a famous town merchant named Bill rolled out a barrel of honey to the square and offered everyone a treat.

But people were even more surprised when they asked about the reason for such a gift and heard Bill reply that it wasn’t a gift at all.

Bill has been selling honey for many years. He scooped the product up with a measuring cup and poured it into a buyer’s jug.

But honey is a thick substance, and it takes a long time to pour it out completely... None of the customers have ever waited until the last drop.

But Bill was a rarely honest man and wasn’t going to appropriate anything that wasn’t his, even if it was a matter of a few drops. He poured the rest of the honey into a separate jug, and over the years, he accumulated a barrel full of honey. Now, Bill’s initially strange answer is clear: after all, one can only give what’s one’s own, and he never thought that this honey was his own. He just RETURNED the honey to people who kind of left it for long-term storage.
