A dog wished to take a nap. He was looking for a quiet and comfortable place. Suddenly he saw a manger of an ox. He got into it and lay there on the hay.
Sometime later the ox returned from his day’s work. He was hungry. He then entered his stall and found the dog in his manger. The dog then woke up from his nap. He became angry. He stood up and barked each time the ox came near the hay.
The ox is a patient beast. He waited for some time. But at last he protested, “My dear dog, I would not say anything if you could eat my dinner. But you will neither eat the hay yourself nor let me enjoy it. Your act seems to me to be a very mean act.”
Moral: Some spoil others food though they cannot enjoy that them-selves.
