    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 come over and
    help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the

    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 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 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 **** . .
    The donkey later came back and bit the sh*t 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.
