An old man took his grandson to town on a donkey. At first, he let the boy ride the donkey. Someone walked by and said " Look how selfish that boy is, making the old man walk."
The old man decided to ride and let the boy walk. Then, someone walked by and said "How sad, making the boy walk while he rides!" Hearing that, the old man let the boy ride with him. Soon, another person exclaimed "How cruel of you both to put such a heavy load on that donkey!"
By the time they got to town, they were carrying the donkey! Moral of the story? You will never please everybody. People have the right to their opinions, and you have a right to ignore them!
