A turtle family decided to go on a picnic.The turtles,being naturally slow about things,took seven years to prepare for their outing.Finally the turtle family left home looking for a suitable place.During the second year of their journey they found a place ideal for them at last!

For about six months they cleaned the area,unpacked the picnic basket,and completed the arrangements.Then they discovered they had forgotten the salt.A picnic without salt would be a disaster,they all agreed.After a lengthy discussion,the youngest turtle was chosen to retrieve the salt from home.Although he was the fastest of the slow moving turtles,the little turtle whined,cried and wobbled in his shell.He agreed to go on one condition.that no one would eat until he returned.The family consented and the little turtle left.

Three years passed and the little turtle had not returned.Five years..six years then on the seventh year of his absence,the oldest turtle could no longer contain his hunger.He announced that he was going to eat and begun to unwrap a sandwich.

At that point the little turtle suddenly popped out from behind a tree shouting,'See! I knew you wouldn't wait.Now i am not going to go get the salt'.

Moral: Some of us waste our time waiting for people to live up to our expectations.We are so concerned about what others are doing that we don't do anything ourselves

The little turtle...seriously six years??? He just hide there all the time only to see if its family really keep their promise??? I feel so pissed off!!!! DX

But this story is right. Lots of people are like that, waiting for others yet we're not doing anything. Now my eyes open how irritate that kind of feature is!

Thank You SO much for sharing anyway~ another nice story from you :)

Who said I'm angry at you? Hahaha XDDD
If you notice XD means laughing/excited smile or something like that. But DX is opposite from it. Eyes close with dissatisfied/angry mouth ;)

Somehow I felt that the little turtle didn't go. I heard a similiar story somewhere but it wasn't about turtles.
