The donkey who fell into a 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.
He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all 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 finally looked down  the well. He was astonished at  what  he saw.  With each shovel of dirt that hit his back , the  donkey was doing 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 happily  trotted off!
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 steppingstone. 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 - Forgive. 
  2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happen. 
  3. Live simply and appreciate what you have. 
  4. Give more. 
  5. Expect less. 

NOW  .............
Enough of  that crap.  The donkey later came back, and bit the farmer who had tried to bury him.  The gash  from the bite got infected and  the farmer  eventually died in agony from septic shock.
MORAL FROM TODAY'S LESSON:
When you do something wrong, and try to cover your ass,  it always comes back to bite you.
