A man and his son were going to the market. While they were walking, a country man passed and said, “You fool, what a donkey for but to ride upon?"

So the man put the boy on the donkey. But soon, some passersby said, "see that lazy young steer. He lets his father walk while he rides."

So the man ordered his boy to get off and got on himself, but the passerby "Shame on that lazy old man, he lets his poor son walk, while he rides"

The man did not know what to do. Last, he took his boy on the donkey. Then the passerby said "Aren't you ashamed of yourself for overloading the poor donkey?"

The man and the boy got off. They cut down a pole, tied the donkey's feet to it and raised the pole to their shoulders. They arrived to a bridge when the donkey, getting one of its feet loose, kick all out and caused the boy to drop his end of the pole. In the struggle, the donkey fell over the bridge and then it was drowned.
