An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the
donkey and the old man walked. As they went along they passed some people
who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking and the boy was riding.
The old man and the boy thought that maybe the critics were right, so they
changed places.

Later they passed some more people who remarked, "What a shame he makes that
little boy walk!" They then decided they both would walk.

Soon they passed some more people who thought they were stupid to walk when
they had a decent donkey to ride. So they both rode the donkey.

Next they passed some more people who shamed them by saying how awful to see
such a heavy load on a poor donkey. The boy and the man agreed they were
probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey between them.

As they crossed a bridge, they lost their grip on the animal and he fell
into the river and drowned.

The moral of the story?

If you try to please everyone, you may as well kiss your ass good-bye.
