There was an old man, a boy and a donkey. They were going to town and
it was decided that the boy should ride.
As they went along they passed some people who thought that it was a
shame for the boy to ride and the old man to walk. The old man and
boy decided that maybe the critics were right so they changed
Later, they passed some more people who thought that it was a real
shame for that man to make such a small boy walk. The two decided
that maybe they should both walk.
Soon they passed some people who thought that it was stupid to walk
when they had a donkey to ride. The man and the boy decided maybe the
best thing would be for them both to ride the donkey.
Soon, they passed a group who thought that it was a shame to put such
a load on a poor helpless animal. The old man and the boy decided
that maybe the critics were right so they decided to carry the donkey.
As they crossed a 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 will eventually lose your ass.
