mallet Started The Discussion:

Different people have different perception. One man's
meat could be another man's poison. A couple bought a
donkey from the market. On the way home,a boy
commented, "Very stupid. Why neither of them ride on
the donkey?"Upon hearing that, the husband let the
wife ride on the donkey. He walked besides them.
Later, an old man saw it and commented, "The husband
is the head of family. How can the wife ride on the
donkey while the husband is on foot?" Hearing this,
the wife quickly got down and let the husband ride on
the donkey.

Further on the way home, they met an old Lady. She
commented, "How can the man ride on the donkey but let
the wife walk. He is no gentleman."
The husband thus quickly asked the wife to join him on
the donkey. Then, they met a young man. He commented,
"Poor donkey, how can you hold up the weight of two
persons. They are cruel to you." Hearing that, the
husband and wife immediately climbed down from the
donkey and carried it on their shoulders.

It seems to be the only choice left. Later, on a
narrow bridge, the donkey was frightened and
struggled. They lost their balance and fell into the
river. You can never have everyone praise you, nor
will everyone condemn you. Never in the past, not at
present, and never will be in the future.

Thus, do not be too bothered by others words if our
conscience is clear..

Nice story mallet.

The conclusion would be.....

When the couple walked along carrying the donkey on their shoulders, the passed a group of children playing. The children stopped to see them & started laughing.
One of the children said, I wonder who is the real donkey, the carriers or the carried?

Moral: If you try to please everyone , you won't please yourself.
