Once upon a time, in a small village nestled in a lush valley, there lived a father and his young son. The father, named Ali, was known for his wisdom and wit, while his son, named Ahmad, was eager to learn from his father's teachings. One day, Ali decided it was time to buy a donkey to help them with their daily chores and to carry goods to the nearby market.Excited about their new acquisition, Ali and Ahmad set out to the market with their donkey by their side. But little did they know that their journey would be filled with amusing and unexpected encounters that would teach them valuable life lessons.As they walked through the village, Ahmad insisted on riding the donkey, while Ali walked alongside. They met a group of villagers who were taken aback by Ahmad's behavior. "Look at that young boy riding the donkey while his poor father walks!" they exclaimed in disapproval. Ali and Ahmad took note of their remarks and decided to switch roles.Next, Ali rode the donkey while Ahmad walked. As they continued on their way, they met a merchant who chuckled at Ali's choice. "What a lazy old man, riding the donkey while his young son walks! Have some respect for your son's energy," he remarked. Ali and Ahmad exchanged glances and decided to ride the donkey together.As they trudged along, they met a group of children who jeered at them. "What foolishness! Two grown men riding a single donkey, burdening the poor animal!" they taunted. Ali and Ahmad were taken aback and tried to come up with a solution.Finally, they decided to carry the donkey on a makeshift stretcher, hoping to please everyone. As they crossed a bridge, the donkey wriggled and slipped, falling into the river and ruining their plan. They stood there, soaked and disappointed, realizing that they couldn't please everyone, no matter what they did.
A story that we heard since we were still a kid, and we laugh at people's stupidity.
While laughing, maybe we should check if we are carrying a donkey on our back.
