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 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, 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 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 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. The donkey later came back and kicked the shit out
of the farmer that tried to bury him. Moral: When you try to cover your
ass, it always comes back to get you.

In short, do the opposite of what I do.

Who give a crap about the donkey?
What about the well?
Now farmer dick weed has to drill a new well since his old one is filled full of dirt and donkey crap.
What a moron, proper planning would have prevented this from happening.
Put the donkey in a pen, make a wall around the well and cover it when not in use.
Friggin liberals probablywant to arrest him for cruelty to animals and polluting the water. [x]
