A person with back and neck pain was standing in a deep hole and they cried out for help.

A policeman came by and asked what the trouble was. The policeman politely told them it was their job to keep peace and that I was probably a trouble maker and they were going to keep an eye on me.

A minister came by and heard the cry and said they would pray for me.

a psychiatrist came by and heard the cry and wrote a script and threw it into the hole for me.

A therapist came by and heard the cries and said tell me your problems.

Another back and neck pain sufferer came by and heard the cries for help and jumped down into the hole with me. I asked them what the heck they were doing. They said I understand you, I will keep you company here and we can find the way our together.

    A mule fell down into a dry well.

    The whole village gathered around to try to figure a way to get the mule out. After no one could figure out a way to get the mule out ... they figured they would just put the poor mule out of his misery and JUST BURY HIM ALIVE!

    As the villagers started throwing shovels of dirt into the hole ... the dirt would land on the mules back where he would promptly shake and shrug the dirt off, making it fall to the floor of the dry well. Each time the villagers would throw ... the mule would shrug ... he then started to step up.

    After several hours of shrugging if off and steping up, the stubborn mule hopped out of the well much to the villagers suprise. The stubborn mule figured out what to do when the villagers had given up.

    I know how that mule feels! How about you?
