    Donkey in the well

    Donkey in the Well-


    One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They each grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.

    At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well, and was astonished at what he saw. As every shovel of dirt hit his back, the donkey did something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

    Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off.

    The MORAL:

    Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping-stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up!

    Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

    1) Free your heart from hatred.

    2) Free your mind from worries.

    3) Live simply.

    4) Give more.

    5) Expect less.

    OK, That's enough of that ********! The donkey later came back, caught the farmer out in the field and kicked the **** out of him. The he went over to each of his neighbors' farms and kicked the **** out of them too for helping.

    The real MORAL!

    When you try to cover your ass, it always comes back to get you!
    As you slide down the banister of life,
    May the splinters never point the wrong way.
