The Two Mules

The Two Mules :

Two mules were on the same path. The first, who worked for a miller, was loaded with oats. The other was owned by a banker and was carrying a chest full of golden coins. Because of this it trotted along very proudly, full of itself.

But on hearing the clinking, some robbers realised that it was carrying a treasure.

They stole it and beat the mule badly with sticks. 'You see,' explained the first mule. 'Being rich and important has its drawbacks.'
