Aesop's Fable Friday
A Horse used to graze in a meadow which he had all to himself. But one day a Stag came into the meadow, and said he had as good a right to feed there as the Horse, and moreover chose all the best places for himself.
The Horse, wishing to be revenged upon his unwelcome visitor, went and asked a man if he would help him to turn out the Stag.
"Yes," said the man, "I will , but only if you let me put a bridle in your mouth and mount on your back."
The Horse agreed to this, and the two together very soon turned the Stag out of the pasture: but when that was done, the Horse found to his dismay that in the man he had got a master forever.
Moral of the story: Vengeance may be worse than the deed that provoked it.
My alternative moral: You're better off taking care of these kind of things yourself!!
Another alternative moral: Don't obligate yourself to anything distasteful even in times of need.
