A boy and his father were going to town with their donkey. Some people remarked “what a shame that little boy is riding the donkey when he has energy, and making the poor old man walk”. The old man and his son agreed to switch places. Then others remarked “look at that grown man on a donkey making a poor little boy who can’t work walk”. So then they decided the both walk. Then some said “look at that man and his son walking when they have a perfectly good donkey to ride”. So they both decided to both ride the donkey. Then others shamed them by saying how awful to put such a load on a poor donkey. They both agreed to carry the donkey instead, then while crossing a bridge they dropped the donkey into the river and it drowned. The moral of the story is if you try to please everyone then you might as well kiss your ass goodbye.
