traveling by donkey

Abdulrahman and his son were going from village to village and Abdulrahman walked beside the donkey that his elderly father was riding. In the first village, the people exclaimed: "OH! That poor young boy is walking while the father rides the donkey!"So the father got off and Abdulrahman got on and they went to the next village. In the next village, the people exclaimed, "OH! That poor old man is walking while his son rides the donkey!"So they both got on the donkey and the people in the third village exclaimed, "OH! That poor donkey! Carrying the weight of two people!"So they both carried the donkey on their backs and were laughed out of the fourth village!

The moral of the story: You can't please everybody
