A guy walks into a bar, orders 3 mugs of Budweiser and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender winks and tells him, "You know, a mug of beer goes flat soon after I draw it, it would taste better if you bought one at a time."
guy replies, "Well, it's like this, I have 2 brothers. One is in
Australia, the other is in Ireland, and I'm in good ol' U S of A. When
we all left home after college, we promised that we'd drink this way to
remember the days we had
fun guzzling together. So I drink one for each of my brothers and one
for myself. For old time's sake." The bartender admits that this is
a touching, heart-warming custom, and
leaves it at that.
guy becomes a regular in this bar, and always drinks the same way. He
orders 3 mugs and drinks them one sip each, in turn. One day, he comes
in and orders 2 mugs. All the regulars + bar-tender take notice and
become silent.(Guy must have lost a brother).
he comes back to the bar for the second round, the
bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I want
to offer my condolences on
guy looks puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns and he laughs.
"Oh no, everybody in the family's just fine," he explains,
"It's just that my wife had me join her Baptist Church and I had to
quit drinking all together. Darn, but this hasn't affected my 2 brothers
tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some
point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the
other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without
saying anything, wrote in the sand: "TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED
ME IN THE FACE." They kept on walking until they found an oasis,
where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got
stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After
he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone:
MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE."
friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, "After
I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now you write on a stone.
Why?" The other friend replied: "When someone hurts us we
should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it
away But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in
stone where no wind can ever erase it." LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS
IN THE SAND AND TO CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE.
it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them,
a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.

One day a farmer's aging donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided since the animal was old it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel mud into the well, to get him buried.
first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.
The legend has it that the donkey said to have said, “My dear
farmer, I slogged for you my entire life and I can still work for you.
Don’t bury me alive, just because I am old, and don't bury your
own well, please.” Then,
to everyone's amazement, he quieted down.
With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing
something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the
farmer's neighbors continued to shovel mud on top of the animal, he
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 took off as a wanderer, after a big
‘thank you’ to humans for treating him so humanely.

regained your senses. Since you were able to jump in and save another
patient you must be mentally stable. The bad news is that the patient
whom you saved, Mr. John, hung himself in the bathroom, and died."
