●本編

Two men were traveling together along, when one of them found a purse.
"I'm so lucky!" said the man. "I found a purse and judging from the weight, it's full of gold!"
"Don't say I found a purse" said his companion. "Say WE found a purse and how lucky WE are.
Travelers have to share the fortunes and the misfortunes alike on the road."
"No, no." said the other traveler angrily. "I found it and I am going to keep it."

Just then, they head a person shout "Stop, thief! "
They looked around and saw a mob of people armed with clubs coming down the road.
The man who found the purse started to panic.
"We are in so much trouble if they find us with the purse."

"No, no," replied the other,
"You would not say WE before, so now stick to 'I'. Say 'I am in trouble"

lesson: We cannot expect anyone to share our misfortunes unless we are willing to share our good fortune also.
