Words of wisdom for today


An old man and a young boy were traveling through their village with their
donkey. The boy rode the donkey and the old man walked. As they went along
they passed some people who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking
and the boy was riding. The man and boy thought maybe the critics were
right, so they changed positions. Later, they passed some people that
remarked: "What a shame, he makes that little boy walk." They then decided
they both would walk. Soon they passed some more people who thought they
were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride. So, they both
rode the donkey. Now they passed some people that shamed them by saying:
"How awful to put such a load on a poor donkey." The boy and man said they
were probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey. As they crossed
the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal and he fell into the river
and drowned.

The moral of the story ? If you try to please everyone, you might as well
kiss your ass good-bye!

The lesson of this one is very true The older I get the more I see how ttrue :-(
