The 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 so 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. As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, 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.

O.K., that's enough of that B.S. ... The donkey later came back, caught the farmer out in the field and kicked the **** out of him. Then 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.

The real story

It was told to me by someone who had just betrayed me in an extremley personal way. I rather suspect it was supposed to make me feel better when he compared me to the Donkey............but you know the real story there?

That JackAss farmer and all his JackAss buddies shoveled all that crap on that poor donkey, and when he/she overcame all that crap being shoveled.......the JackAss farmer got his Jack Ass back to do all the hard labor on that farm.
