>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 shit out of 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.
