A stingy man and an envious man

There was once a king who wanted to teach two of his servants valuable lessons in life. He knew that one of his servants was a stingy person whereas the other was envious and wanted evil for others. Therefore, the king told them he wanted one of them to wish a big thing for himself. He would thus give what this one wanted, and the other will receive the double of what the first one requested. And since each one of the two men only desired good things for himself, and refused one of them to get more, they started arguing and couldn't make any decision. The king got upset, and warned them to choose something. Otherwise, he would cut off their heads. After that, the stingy man requested the king to remove one of his eyes.
