Why We Work So Hard

Want to know why u r working so hard?
On the very first day of the world, God created the cow.
He said to the cow: "Ah Gu (cow), today I have created you
Your job is to go to the field with the farmer all day long.You
will

providethe energy to pull things!
You will also provide milk for people to drink!
You are to work all day under the sun! In return, you will only
eat grass.

For that, you will have a life span of 50 years." Ah Gu
objected.

"What… I work all day in the sun and I get only to eat grass!
On top of that, I have to give my milk away!
This is tough and you want me to live 50 years! I’ll take 20 and
you

can have the remaining 30 years back!" God agreed.

On the next day, God created the dog.

He said to the dog. "Ah Kow (dog), I have created you for a
purpose.

You are to sit all day by the door of your master’s house!
Should

anyone come in, you are to bark at them!
In return, you will eat your master’s leftovers. I’ll give you a
life

span of 20 years."
Ah Kow objected. " What! I have to sit by the door all day and
will

need to bark at people, and what do I get…LEFTOVERS… This
isn’t

right, I’ll take 10 and you can have the remaining 10 years
back!"

God agreed again.

On the third day, God created the monkey.

He said to the monkey. "Lao Kao (monkey), your job is to
entertain people.

You will make them laugh, act stupid and make faces!
You will also do somersaults and swing on trees to amaze them.
In return, you will get to eat bananas and peanuts. For that,
I’ll

give you 20 years to live." Naturally the monkey objected.
"This is ridiculous, I gotta make faces and make people laugh
let not

evencome to the part about the trees and somersaults.
Tell you what, I’ll give 10 years of my life to thank you for my
existenceand I’ll take 10.

What do you think?"
God agreed again.

On the fourth day, God created humans.

God said to the man.
"You are my best piece of work, for that, you will only need to
sleep,

eat, sleep, play, eat, sleep again and do nothing else.You will
get to

eat all the best things and play with the best toys. All you
need to

do is enjoy all your life. For this kinda of life, I’ll give you
20

years."
Just like the rest, the man objected. "What, all I need to do is
relax

and enjoy myself and

I have only 20 years to live?
Tell you what, you’ve 30 years back from Ah Gu, 10 years from Ah
Kow

and another 10 from Lao Kao and you probably don’t know what to
do

with all those lifes. Why not I take them all and I’ll have 70
years to live?"

God being such good natured, agreed with a smile…
AND THAT IS WHY…

We eat, sleep, play and enjoy for the first 20 years of our
lives when

we are growing up.
Work like a cow for the next 30 to raise our family.
Sit outside the door and bark at people for the next 10 when we
are

retired.
And finally, we make faces and perform monkey tricks to
entertain our

grandchildren for the final 10 years.
GET IT ???

The end

hahaha…good one… :stuck_out_tongue:
