The Greedy Landlady

A messenger who was carrying a large bale of goods stopped to rest in a village hotel. The landlady of the hotel was a greedy woman and so when she saw his package she wanted it. She led the merchant to his room and ran to her husband for advice on how to lure the package carrier. 
“It’s very easy to do,” her husband advised her. “Gather the herbs called grass mega otshibaet memory, and mix them with dinner. When the merchant eats these he’ll forget his package here with us. 
So the landlady went to the garden and gathered an armful of grass mega, cooked it and slipped it into all of the dishes. 
At dinner the merchant ate and ate and didn’t notice anything. He did feel a little dizzy and the blood was rushing to his face so he went to his room and laid down and fell asleep immediately. The next morning he awoke at dawn with a headache but he had a job to do so he left. When he had left the landlady went to find his package but the room was empty. She ransacked the room but she still didn’t find anything. Thwarted she ran once more to her husband.
“Your herbs didn’t work, I cooked it but the merchant didn’t leave his bags behind,” the woman complained.
“That can’t be, anyone who eats those herbs will definitely forget something. Look carefully he probably forgot something,” he told her.
So the landlady rushed back up to the room and carefully went though everything but she found nothing. Finally she stopped in the middle of what she was doing and looked around in confusion. Then she slapped her head and cried out.
“I can’t believe I forgot that,” she screamed in frustration.
“What, what?” her husband called as he heard her scream in frustration. 
“I forgot to have him pay,” she groaned.
