The dervish Barbari, posing as a disciple, regularly attended the weekly meetings of an imitation Sufi who imagined that he was teaching the real Way.
Every time the dervish appeared at the meeting, he asked the supposed Sufi a ridiculous question.
After he had had to snap at him several hundred times, the pretender shouted at Barbari:
‘You have been coming here for twelve years and all your absurd questions are only variations of the one which you have just asked!’
‘Yes, I know,’ said Barbari, ‘but the delight which I get from seeing you so annoyed is my only vice.’
