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 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. He was astonished at what he
saw. With each 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 happily 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 steppingstone. 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 - Forgive.
2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.
3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less
NOW -------- Enough of that crap . . .

The donkey later came back, and bit the shit out of the farmer who
had tried to bury him. The gash from the bite got infected, and the
farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock
When you do something wrong, and try to cover your ass, it always comes
back to bite you.
