this is a story i read on the news paper and i want to share it with you all my friends because somehow it teaches something about life.. Two businessmen met in the street.One looked so sad and almost on the verge of tears.The other man said,"Hey, how come you look like the whole world caved in?" The sad fellow said,"Let me tell you.Three weeks ago,an uncle dies and left me P200.000.Thats not bad.Said his businessman friend trying to console him."Hold on.I'm just getting started.Two weeks ago,a cousin i never knew met an accident,dies and he left me P500 tax free.""I'd like that.But i can't understand why your not happy."And the sad fellow said,"Last week my grandfather passed away.I inherited almost P2 million.""Then how come you look so glum?And the sadness the businessman said,"of course I'm sad.Look.This week-nothing.Nobody died!" some people will never be happy because all they ever wanted is more..hope you found some good lesson about it..

Hi angel_of_charm! I find the story funny but at the ame time I agree with you that there is a very beautiful lesson to be learned here. I guess, most of the times we wanted so much more in life that we never get contented of what we have and which makes us unhappy all the time. Thanks for sharing that story and reminding us with that valuable lesson of contentment. have a nice day! :)

oh, that is a good story. life is a college, the more we live the more we learn. the rich wants more also the poor. the funniest thing is the nobody die and carry his wealth to the grave. thanks
