    Lesson for today - definite read:

    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
    neighbours to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began
    to shovel dirt into the well.

    At first, the donkey realised 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, and was astonished at what he saw.

    With every 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
    neighbours 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!

    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.

    Enough of that crap.

    Later The donkey came back and kicked the shit out of the farmer who tried
    to bury him.

    Moral: When you try to cover your ass, it always comes back to get you.

    Hello Trucker,

    At first I thought, WOW, Trucker is getting so cerebral. Then I got to the end. Its good. I will look for opportunities to use it.

    How about another MORAL, from the neighbors perspective:

    Trying to kill your neighbors ass by throwing dirt at him will only bring his ass to the top.

    Any other ideas?
