Donkey Means One Thing and The Driver Another
A man had two A daughters: one was married to a poor farmer; the other to a potter. Once, the father went to visit each of them and asked, ‘How is the business going on?’
*Very well,’ replied the first daughter, ‘but we could use more water to irrigate the land. We pray every night that God will send us rain!’ When he asked the second daughter, she replied: ‘Business is going on well, but we pray to God for dry weather to harden our pots!’ ‘And what should I pray for?’ exclaimed the father, ‘if one daughter wants one thing and the other the opposite?’
One man’s meat is another man’s poison.
