A Farmer’s Donkey Drove Into A Well
A farmer’s donkey fell into a well one day.
For hours, the animal screamed pitifully as the farmer attempted to figure out what to do.
Finally, he determined that because the donkey was elderly and the well needed to be covered up, it wasn’t worth the effort to rescue it.
He encouraged his entire neighborhood to come over and assist him. They all grabbed shovels and started digging into the well.
The donkey initially comprehended what was occurring and wailed bitterly.
Then, to everyone’s surprise, he calmed down.
The farmer eventually peeked into the well after a few shovel loads.
He was taken aback by what he saw. The donkey was performing every shovel of dirt that hit his back.
He’d brush it off and take a stride forward.
He would shake it off and take a step higher while the farmer’s neighbors began to shovel dirt on top of the animal.
Everyone was surprised when the donkey stepped over the side of the well and joyfully trotted away!
Life will hurl all kinds of filth at you.
The key to climbing out of the well is to shake it off and take a stride forward.
Each of our difficulties is a stepping stone.
We can get out of the deepest wells by never giving up and never quitting!
Shake it off and take another stride forward.
ENOUGH WITH THE bullshit.
The donkey subsequently returned and bit the farmer who had attempted to bury him.
The bite wound became infected, and the farmer perished in pain from septic shock.
Today’s lesson has a moral:
When you do the wrong thing and try to hide your tracks, it always comes back to bite you.
