The Moral of the Story
One hot and humid day, a young boy was leading an old man on a donkey through town. As they passed a group of bystanders, some began to complain how unfair it was that the young boy had to walk while the old man was able to ride. In hearing this, they switched places and continued on. As they passed another group of citizens, they overheard how unfair it was that the old man had to walk while the young boy was able to ride. At this point, the pressure became so great that they both decided to ride the donkey. Unfortunately, after taking a few steps the donkey keeled over and died due to the excess weight. The moral of this story is when you try to please all of the people all of the time, you lose your ass.
