The king of Wei State was going to sent his son to Zhao State as hostage. In order to insure his son's safety, he asked Pang Gong to accompany his son. Prior to leaving Wei State, Pang Gong went to visit the king and asked him, "My king, if someone told you that there is a tiger on the street, will you believe him?"
 
The king said, "Obviously, I will not."
 
Pang Gong kept asking, "If another people tell you that there is a tiger on the street, will you believe them?"
 
The king said, "I will begin to doubt."
 
Then Pang Gong asked again, "If there are three people who tell you that there is a tiger on the street, will you believe them?" The king said, "I am afraid that I have to believe them." Pang Gong said, "There is no doubt that a tiger will never appear on the street. However, when there are three people who lie to you, you will believe them. Now, Zhao State is far away from our country. While I stay in Zhao State, there must be many people who speak evil of me. I hope that you can determine whether they are telling the truth." The king said, "OK, you have my word." However, while Pang Gong left, the king believed the rumors and he never employed Pang Gong after he returned from Zhao State.
