Donkey in The Well


by a Modern Farmer

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried furiously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway. The farmer decided that it wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed shovels and began to dump dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement it quieted down.
The farmer saw, with each shovel of dirt that hit its back, the donkey was doing something amazing. It would shake the dirt off and take a step up.
As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, it would shake it off and take a step up.
Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

Epilogue 2: The donkey later came back and bit the farmer who had tried to bury it. The gash from the bite got infected and the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock. The neighbors and his family buried him in the well.

Lesson 1: Never throw dirt on others, just because you think they are worthless. They might shake it off and take a step up.

Lesson 2: When you do something wrong and try to cover your ass, often it comes back to bite you.

Lesson 1 applies to MTCC this way:
Some people (who thought they were very powerful and superior to others), treated the rest of MTCC staff like second class employees and sometimes slaves. And now the so called second class employees are standing up for their rights, for the rights of the rest of us. The old farmer has to flee.

Lesion 2 applies to MTCC this way:
Decades old management’s mistakes got piled up to such heights that it can no longer be hidden or covered up that simply. Now the piles of mistakes are haunting them.

      Hello Old Donkey!
      I think ‘old donkey’ is a deserving and very accurate name for such an —— like you. I have nothing more to say here. Even if I say something to you, you may not be able to get it without a translator. So the book is closed for you and try to get your finger wet with saliva and bend it down from b—-d the way your ex-chairperson Fathin did. Yes, you all are donkeys and dogs. There is nothing you could do except barking. Bark! Bark!…

      SAPPE even cant give notice to corrupted cases (Siraj, Zaki, Solih, Usman, Sheereen).

      SAPPE will fail, like NAFAA, now its been a while, can anyone seen any improvement in businesses.

      Corrupted cases will remain in the office, it they retire, we better go for another place.

    Lesson 3:

    Don’t treat the old farmers the way they treated their donkeys.
