Untitled Story

I've once heard of a story. I dont remember the title. I dont remember the ending. I dont remember who told me or where I got the story from. The story always come across my mind because I think it is interesting. I wonder have you ever heard of it. The story sounded like this...

Once upon a time, there was a poor father who stayed in a small hut in some-place-i-forgotten-its-name with his young son, who was not given a name. I shall name him, Jaacob. Along with a donkey (or is it horse?!?!). Then one day, Jaacob's father decided to go to the town (I think. Oh dear, can someone correct me if I'm wrong?). He brought Jaacob and th donkey along too.

It was a very long journey. They had to walk to town as they had no money for transportation. On their way there, they met an old lady. She stared at the tired little boy and mumbled (in some auntie slang), "Wa. You wanna torture the little boy meh.. Got donkey also dont let him sit on it." And went off. The father felt so embarassing and then, he carried Jaacob and put him on top of the donkey. "Thanks papa" said Jaacob to his father. And then, they continued their journey.

Then, they met another stranger again. He stared at the tired father and said, "Oh my dear, how come there is such a unfilial son. Letting the father suffer while he himself relax on the animal's back." And went off. Jaacob felt very guilty and invited his father up. And so, he went up on the donkey and countinued the journey.

Then then, they met someone else again. Omg. Damn irritating passerbys. This time, this guy looked at the donkey and said, "Such cruel people. Torturing the donkey...." And left. Both of them felt so bad and jumped off the donkey's back. They then tied its leg and hands with a rope on a bamboo stick and carried it all the way like this to town. They thought it would make the donkey less tired.

Once they entered the town, everyone stared at them. "Why are they doing this to the donkey...." And then, I dont remember what happened next.

Have you heard of this story? Can anyone continue it for me. It's so irritating when I fail to get the whole picture of it. It's very very frustrating. I want to know the story. I think it would be a meaningful one.

Ah that story, errr it was from chinese cartoon show, it illustrates a chinese proverbs (idioms or watever) in the form of cartoon.

1. The narrator din meantion their name just "the father, the son, etc etc"
2. they wanted to sell the donkey
3. at the end no one wants to buy the donkey, they said something like "That must be a disabled donkey"
4. i forgotten the proverb, my guess is something like dun let other ppl influence u or something

something wasn't right at the portion whr the donkey carried the father and son. passerby said they were cruel to the donkey, and they should carry the donkey instead.
so they found a long piece of wood and tie the donkey to it, trying to carry it. but the donkey struggled and then ran away.
so in the end they couldn't sell the donkey.
moral is, do not try to please everybody.
something liddat lah.. hehe..
