That's not my Problem

That's not my Problem

Once upon a time, a mouse was looking through a hole in the wall and saw a farmer and his wife opening a package. He wondered what type of food could be in it, to his horror, he saw that the package contained a mouse trap. The mouse ran to the backyard to warn everyone: "There's a mouse trap in the house, there's a mouse trap in the house!"

The chicken raised his head and said: "Pardon me, Mr. Mouse, I understand that's a big problem for you, it doesn't afect me at all, I don't need to worry about that."

The mouse went to see the lamb and told him: "There's a mouse trap in the house!" The lamb's answer was: "Excuse me, Mr. Mouse, there's nothing I can do but to pray for you, don't be concerned about a thing."

Worried, the mouse went to the cow, and he got this answer: "Am I in danger? I don't think so." Frustrated, the mouse decided to go back to the house and to face the farmer's mouse trap alone.

That night, the noise of a mouse trap catching its victim was heard. The farmer's wife went to see what she caught. It was dark and she didn't realize that the mouse trap had caught a poisonous snake by the tail, which bit the woman. The farmer took his wife to the hospital, but when they returned to the house, the woman had developed a high fever.

Everbody knows there's nothing better to feed someone with fever than a chicken soup. The farmer, knife in hand, went to get his main ingredient: the chicken. The fever, however, continued and the family's friends and neighbors came to visit. The farmer killed the lamb to feed the group of visitors.

The woman's condition worsened and she ended up dying, the farmer sold the cow to the slaughter house to cover the funeral expenses.

The next time you listen to someone who has a problem and you believe it's not yours, you don't have to pay attention, just think twice about it.
