Friday Funny

Something to ponder as we head into 2016.
Old Man and Boy
An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town, the boy rode on the donkey, the old man walked.   As they went along they passed some people who remarked: "What a shame, the old man is walking, the boy is riding."   
The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right, they changed positions.  
Later they passed some people who remarked: "What a shame, he makes that little boy walk," they then decided they'd both walk.   
Soon they passed some more people who remarked "They're really stupid to walk when they have a decent donkey to ride."   
They both decided to ride the donkey.   
They passed some people who shamed them by saying: "How awful to put such a load on a poor donkey."   
The boy and the man figured they were probably right, they decide to carry the donkey.  
As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the donkey, the donkey fell into the river and drowned.   
The moral of the story, if you try to please everyone, you might as well kiss your ass goodbye
Have a nice day.

Off to join in with Annie's Smiles on Friday.   Have a good weekend.

A very belated Happy Friday/Monday Hettie - have to agree ROFL, but isn't it so true - we need to be happy with ourselves and not worry about what others think,life is too short (as the donkey found out). Have a wonderful week Robyn
