Article #3

When I was growing up, my father used to tell me this story.  This story stuck with me for my whole life and it has the most powerful moral that I could think of.  The story goes like this.

One day, there was a farmer and his donkey.  That morning, the donkey fell into a deep well.  The donkey cried and cried for hours and hours.

The farmer decided that the donkey was old so he grabbed a shovel and started throwing dirt on top of the donkey.  The donkey started crying more and more but then, out of nowhere, he stopped.

A couple more hours of shoveling dirt, the farmer thought he was done.  So he looked down into the well.  He could not believe his eyes when he did.  With every shovel full, the donkey would shake it off and use that dirt to take a step up.

After about 10 minutes, the donkey stepped out of the whole.  Everyone was amazed that this “old” donkey could accomplish such an amazing task.  The donkey just trotted off happier than ever.

The moral of this story is, life is going to shovel dirt on you.  The trick of getting out is to shake it off and take a step up.  Use your troubles and hardships as a stepping stone to happiness and satisfaction. Never give up, shake it off, and take a step up.  With this, you can get out of the deepest wells.

Now…that’s enough.  The donkey later came back and bit the farmer in the butt.  The bite caused the farmer to get an infection and he later died that day.

So the real moral of the story is when you do something wrong, and try to cover your a** (slang for donkey), it will always come back and bite you.
