இ Cover your ass

Photobucket

Some would have known this stale story received from email and special thanks to the original author of an old donkey who accidentally fell into an old well but the farmer did not try his level best to retrieve the donkey and given up hope easily and decided that the animal was old so might as well buried it. Firstly as not to see it suffer so much and secondly closing up the well would prevent future accidents. To the farmer's surprise each time he shovel in the dirt the donkey would shake it off and take a step up and pretty soon, the donkey managed to step up over the edge of the well and escaped death!

****

When life is going to shovel dirt, all kinds of dirt on you, the trick to get 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 bold step up.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.

Live simply and appreciate what you have. Count your blessings and remember nothing is perfect. Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys.

Give more and expect the least.

Expect change. Do not be upset with change, it is inevitable, it is the norm; kids will grow up, people will pass on and jobs will come and go.


“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi.



NOW .......


Enough of that crap! The donkey later came back, and bit 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.

MORAL FROM TODAY'S LESSON:


In almost all corporations when you do something wrong and try to Cover Your Ass ~ *CYA* it always comes back to bite you sooner or later. Are you aware that donkeys kill more people annually than plane crashes or shark attacks? (So watch your ass)..Bananaz Beleaf It Or Not ¿

I like the story! How come I never heard it before? thanks for sharing my friend hehehe

so smartass huh? :)

Twilight Man said...

I wear safety-ass-cover all the time cos I got bitten before. I also learnt never to crow on the tree branch or else the hunter will shoot me down. I love all your morals!

Sheoh Yan said...

Love the story. It has become a good source to be my tonight bedtime story for my girls. Thanks for sharing, a very good moral taught in the story.

Hayley said...

Wow, really nice and meaningful rules to be happy. Thanks for sharing!

Naomi said...

woo.. using SK's script.

nice moral story!

HappySurfer said...

Smart ass! Oops! I mean, must remember that moral of the story and be grateful too. LOL

mNhL said...

Poor owner....and smart donkey!

Merryn said...

it is a good story lah.. until i read the last part @_@ kesian the owner :(

yvonne said...

Interesting story of the donkey and the ending... can see this scenario applicable to daily life ;)

yvonne said...

Btw, like the five rules above, especially the 1st one. Hatred only eats our heart inside out.

lina said...

Good reminder, this.

lina said...

Yup, must try hard to not let hatred and worries eat you up. Think good things, and good things happen to you.

lina said...

Though sometimes I do anything to cover my ass! ^^!

Casendra said...

agreed agreed. Sometimes we just forgot that it is actually very easy to be of happy... :)

Gratitude said...

Sadhu sadhu sadhu! Love this post (esp the extended version! lolz)

So true. We all know it is difficult, but somehow we have set a positive mind to get through the obstacles coz like it or not, life goes on.

I tend to do preventive measures nowadays before situations get bad. It pays to identify people and avoid those with emotional problems esp those who are selfish and have anger management issues, coz these people will be the ones to bite our arses even if we have done no wrong.

suituapui said...

Moral of the story: keep everybody down so you can stay on top. You'll never know what they'll do when you help them to get up. Real life situation in this dog-eats-dog world... Watch out! There'll always be somebody all ready to stab you in the back. No friend-friend business. Real sad and pathetic...

Autumn Belle said...

I have heard of many donkey stories but not this one, haha! This is a case of 'biting the hand that feeds you'. When I was small, 'ass' was for donkey but now, my son thinks that this is a forbidden/embarassing word to say in public.

reanaclaire said...

moral of this story also says.. tic for tac and must take revenge ah? hahahaha... ok, donkey story only... so take this as a joke.. don't take revenge ok...

Small Kucing said...

laughing at Claire's comment. Hell halt no fury like an ass scorned?

Alice Law said...

Wei... who has recreated the 'NOW' story ya? The farmer should bleed to death instead of septic shock, lol!!!

Well say my friend, life is full of hiccups, if we kept focusing on the hiccups, we'd hv got distracted and missed a lot of important things ard us!^^

[SK] said...

nice story, have an impression that i've heard it somewhere but just cannot recall what the story's all about out of a sudden..

[SK] said...

very true, the donkey is not pessimistic and what it does is to develop opportunities from the trouble he gets, and finally get itself out of the shit.. and good thing is, it have the final call to the fight.. :D

[SK] said...

haha, actually to be a little more creative.. Bananazஇ can actually change the story a little to say about a monkey fell into the well, and the farmer throws banana skin.. makes the story more fun to read, haha~~ :D

lena said...

wish the donkey could talk. Instead of biting the farmer, he could have talked to him..the farmer need not die.But in real life, i know it's very different. we are all being over protective at times and it's not wrong..if only we cld love our enemies too...

wenn said...

haha..i love this story!

[SK] said...

want more fun?? ask your readers to click on the donkey photo for full story by adding this script to the [img]
onclick="document.getElementById('div_opt1').style.display='';"

and ask your readers to exit the story by clicking any word in that paragraph under [div]
onclick="this.style.display='none';"

TZ said...

How many ass pad you can have? How many ass you can cover? So better do it right at the first time...

Regina said...

Wise words, a pity you couldn't resist that ending! (lol)

Daisy said...

Hahaha! Thanks for the laugh today, Bananaz! :-D

Windsmoke. said...

Bonza story and i agree with the five simple rules to be happy. Its well known fact that donkey's are supposed to be stubborn and stupid not in this case though :-).

rainfield61 said...

I am imagining now that you present this in Powerpoint slide show, in a room.

And lastly your face is shown, in the last picture.

Happy holiday.

eugene said...

I am always happy, cos basically i have my 柴,米,油,盐,酱,醋,茶... the extra that i have,do some charity,put in some FD, drink some Kilkenny, find my fav stocks,hope to make a little money,,,, make my family happy,other than this,none is necessarily.

eugene said...

By the way,always remember "do not kiss those ass,that one day you might just have to kiss" hahahahahah.

eugene said...

Have a great weekend,bro...send my warmest regards to Mango

khengsiong said...

Good advice... but not easy to do.

Isaac Tan said...

wise words from the wise banana! :) thanks for sharing.

Leovi said...

Beautiful story. I will try never to forget those magnificent five rules to survive. Fun and excellent photos of the donkey.

Bananazஇ said...

Netster இ Yoooo! Your croc bite would be just as deadly..lolz tQ

Twilight Man இ Where to buy those safety covers? Yup never to sit on top of a tree and crow haha. tQ

Sheoh Yan இ Huh bedtime story for May & April? Ok tell em about the good happiness and not the Ass hahaha. tQ

Bananazஇ said...

Hayley இ Glad you like em tQ.

Naomi இ Yup been a good *ahem* student of [SK] with his html scripteasing lolz tQ.

HappySurfer இ Smart Ass who? me or the farmer haha. tQ

Bananazஇ said...

mNhl இ Lazy farmer who refused to think and a smart ass.

Merryn இ Moral is do things right if not smart ass will come after later haha.

Yvonne இ Its applicable to home, office or country. Cant afford to make gravely mistake too.

Bananazஇ said...

Lina இ Hatred is a slow poison that kills a person slowly & deadly. CYA could have two sides of a coins. Some smart ass would always CYA to play safe and not make a decision and some carelessly make mistakes and CYA later.

Casendra இ Be happy dont worry huh.

+Ant+ இ Sadhu sadhu sadhu

Bananazஇ said...

Suituapui இ Either friends or drop the 'R' and become fiend haha.

Autumn Belle இ We often ASSume its bad as it is used rampantly towards negativity.

Reanaclaire இ Donkey can be dumb but sometimes do not 'small look' there are some smart ass around too..lolz.

Bananazஇ said...

Small Kucing இ lolz..

Alice Law இ Look for the good in people. Could be a motivation of never to give up but to shake off the dirt and rise up.

[SK] இ Supposed to be a motivation of fighting strongly by sheer accident of the ass and the last part was coz of the farmer didnt use his head innocently just giving up hope of saving that ass who became smart ass later. Haha monkey can climb up well without problem.

Bananazஇ said...

Lena இ Easier said than done to love our enemy but not impossible.

Wenn இ tQ

[SK] இ Yo! tried hard last night until 2am not able to scriptease the html would try again before I get Sifu's kind assistance. tQ.

Bananazஇ said...

TZ இ That's right do it right all the time.

Regina இ Even dumb donkey could be smart sometimes lolz.

Daisy இ Great to laugh out loud after all your hard time dealing with the dirty dozen who did not work well. Hope check is really on its way.

Bananazஇ said...

Windsmoke இ G'day mate donkey could go online nowadays hahaha

Rainfield61 இ Love powerpoint can give shocking surprises with your wild imaginations.

Eugene இ Life should be happy & merry. Kissing smart ass is better than dumb hahaha. tQ for conveying regards to Mango she says sama sama.

Bananazஇ said...

Khengsiong இ Not easy but not impossible.

Isaac Tan இ tQ

Leovi இ Life supposed to be fun and happy. 5 are the most basic and suffice there are more to it.

Lrong said...

Very good story... like the five advice on life, especially the one on simplicity...

Quay Po Cooks said...

To me, this story tells us never abandon responsibility of taking care of the old. Your conscience will eventually catch up with you and by the time you regret it, it may be too late. As for rule number 4, I would say give more and don't expect so you get no disappointment when you get nothing in return. hehe GREAT POST, really enjoy the "A**" story! I am going to share this story with the young ones at my next family gathering. LOL! Thanks my friend.

Bananazஇ said...

Lrong இ Sometimes its the heart and mind got entangled and need to be free.

Quay Po Cooks இ Yup give more and never expect anything. Why need to put asterisk A**? Its another word for donkey lolz.

sexyjessie said...

Good moral story asbracted from the donkey. A stuborn and dumb animal...but he's the superstar in this story....ha ha ha.

Keats The Sunshine Girl said...

They say, don't be an ass'. But I like this story. Hee haw ! Hee Haw!

Bananazஇ said...

Sexyjessie இ Time changed dumb ass transform to smart ass haha.

Keats The Sunshine Girl இ haha hee haw hee haw!

One said...

A great reminder! Perfect photos that go with the story too.

I was just wondering how many people out there worry about potential natural disasters which may or may not happen. Of course there are also those who are not worried and not prepared too.

Bananazஇ said...

One இ tQ. Would say quite a lot of people worry unnecessarily. We should plan for the future and then let go and let G~d as its beyond our control.

bengbeng said...

my ass is covered. thank you :)

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Bananaz, love this story. Very true in today's world.
People have become more selfish, with greed as their main thought always.
And yes, we too have this CYA here, ha ha.
Have a nice day.
Lee.

CH Voon said...

Nice story.

It is motivation post, am i right?

Life is not always good as what u mention to me.

CH Voon said...

so, if you have a selection, you want be the donkey or the man? kekeke

for sure, i dont want be the donkey, but learn the lesson from it.

Selamat Hari Raya to you and family.

Life Ramblings said...

what a delightful story. i truly agree that we should never lose hope and never give up or quit in life and success will come to you later in life.

Life Ramblings said...

you're right about the 5 simple rules. life is short, make it sweet and simplicity works best for us.

Life Ramblings said...

i like the quote from Gandhi. so true and how inspiring!

London Caller said...

Ha ha... How to cover huh?
Your ass shakes left and right, up and down. Cannot stop one!

Life Ramblings said...

Happy Merdeka and enjoy your holidays Bananaz. i'll be going for a hike 2mr morning. hope the weather will be kind to us.

Bananazஇ said...

Bengbeng இ Great.

Uncle Lee இ CYA is happening everywhere as long as there is greed and power.

CH Voon இ Assume you are the donkey nobody can 'kill' you as long as you can shake the dirt when thrown unto you then you will be safe. So shake very often in Russia and you will be OK. Neither wanna be ass or that farmer rather be Bananaz hehehe.

Bananazஇ said...

London Call இ Cover your ass not others hahaha.

Life Ramblings இ You like this quote by Gandhi “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” Yup we must walk the talk. Wish you luck there is no rain likely they come in afternoon. Where do you hike?

CH Voon said...

yes, i will be very very strong :)

sometimes, i feel song to scold people here :P

Bananazஇ said...

CH Voon இ Right be strong. Scold people for a reason to improve is very constructive but not for the pleasure then you become sadistic haha. Cheers beginning to see some smiles now. Take care.

Bengbeng said...

hahaha when i posted my comment i laughed wondering how u would reply as u oways reply comments. notti of me really hahahahhah

Bananazஇ said...

Bengbeng இ Notti notti huh! Did I replied korek? hahaha.

Yee Ling said...

free your mind with worries....Ohh..i guess never! especially i have 2 kids..LOL!!

Bananazஇ said...

Yee Ling இ Yeah can understand a parent's headache on the welfare of their children. Be concern but relax a bit things gonna be alright.

Jo said...

I like this. Instead of surrenduring, liberate yourself from the entrapment!

Bananazஇ said...

Jo இ Great never give up eh tQ for slipping by.
