Here is another controversial and funny forward....
An old man, a boy & a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey
& the old man walked. As they went along they passed some people who
remarked it was a shame the old man was walking & the boy was riding.
The man & boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed
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 & man said they were probably right, so they decide to carry the
donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal & 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 goodbye
