3 lessons working in corporate America.
Lesson Number One A crow was sitting in a tree, doing
nothing all day. A small rabbit saw the crow, and
asked him, Can I also sit like you and do nothing all
day long? The crow answered: Sure, why not. So, the
rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested.
All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit
and ate it.
Moral of the story is: To be sitting and doing
nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.
Lesson Number Two A turkey was chatting with a bull. I
would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,
sighed the turkey,but I haven't got the energy. Well,
why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?
replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients.
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it
actually gave him enough strength to reach the first
branch of the tree.
The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached
the second branch. Finally after a fortnight, there
he was, proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon
he was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the
turkey out of the tree.
Moral of the story: Bullshit might get you to the
top, but it won't keep you there.
Lesson Number Three A little bird was flying south for
the winter. It was so cold, the bird froze and fell to
the ground in a large field. While it was lying
there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it.
As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung,
it began to realize how warm it was. The dung was
actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and
happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to
investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered
the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug
him out and ate him!
The morals of this story are:
1) Not everyone who drops shit on you is your enemy.
2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your
3) And when you're in deep shit, keep your mouth shut.
