An Old Man, a Son and an Ass

An old man and his young son were walking along with an ass that they plan to sell in the market. As they walk down the road, they met a passerby who laughed at them because they were walking beside the beast instead of riding. So the father made the son ride on the ass's back.

Further on, a traveler scolded the son for making his old father walk. With this comment, the son got off and made his father sit on the ass. Still going down the road they met another person who expressed disbelief at the father sitting on the ass while his young son walks.

Finally, getting tired of so many comments, the father and the son carried the ass on their shoulders.
