A Fox and A Goat

The goat was thirsty, so he got into the well. When he had drunk enough, he looked around but there was no way to get out. Then the fox said, “I have a good idea. You stand on your hind legs and put your forelegs against the side of the well. Then, I'll climb on your back, from here. I'll step on your horns, and I can get out. And when I'm out, I'll help you out of the well.”

The goat did as he was asked and the fox got on his back and climbed out of the well. Then, He coolly walked away. The goat called out loudly after him and reminded him of his promise to help him out. The fox merely turned to him and said,”If you only had thought carefully about getting out, you wouldn't have jumped into the well.”
