Fable of the Mousetrap

Fable of the Mousetrap
(An attitude problem)

A mouse looked through a hole in the wall he sees a farmer and his wife opening a package, and felt great emotion and wondered what kind of food can there. The farmer said, finally arrived, opened  it ;  the  mouse was terrified when discovered it was a mousetrap.
He ran the farm yard to warn all who had come in the package. !
There is a mousetrap in the house! ! There is a mousetrap in the house!
The hen was clucking and scratching, raised his head and said, excuse me Mr. Mouse, I understand it's a big deal for you, plus I do not hurt at all and it does not bother me.

Then the mouse hurried was where the lamb and tells screaming! There is a mousetrap in the house, a mousetrap!
Lamb replied: mouse sorry sir, but there's nothing I can do. Only ask for you, rest assured, it will be remembered in my prayers.
Finally the mouse where the cow went to tell also about the trap that had come to the house.
And after hearing the cow said, But did I in danger?
I think not, indeed, I sure do not.
So the mouse returned to the house worried and dejected to face the farmer's mousetrap.
That night there was a noise, like a mousetrap catching its prey.
The farmer's wife rushed to his room to see what was caught.
In the darkness, she saw that the trap had caught the tail of a poisonous snake, but the snake bit the woman.
The farmer rushed her to the hospital. She returned home with a fever.
Everyone knows that to lift someone with a fever, there is nothing better than a good soup.
Then the farmer grabbed his ax and went to get the main ingredient: chicken.
As the woman continued disease, neighbors and friends came to visit.
And to feed them during your visit, the farmer killed the lamb.
But unfortunately the woman did not improve and just dying.
The farmer then sold the cow to the slaughterhouse to cover funeral expenses.

The next time you hear that someone has a problem, and think as not yours you should not pay attention, think again and think again.

"He who does not live to serve, not serve to live"
