Water cooler fables: The goat, the fox and the well

share the fox and the goat fable around the office water cooler 150x150 Water cooler fables: The goat, the fox and the wellIt’s always lovely to be able to show off your extremely brilliant and knowledgeable self around the office water cooler, and what better to share with your work mates than water-related stories, such as those lovely fables penned by Aesop all those years ago. This week, the moral of the story is “Look before you leap”, something which the goat did not do. The crafty fox managed to get himself stuck in well. The goat, passing by, enquired whether the water was tasty, and received the reply that indeed, it was the best spring water that the fox had ever tasted. Super, thought he, and leapt in too. Once he’d done so, he quickly realised that they were now both stuck, at which point the fox suggested he climb over the goat to get out, and then help his new chum to safety. Super, thought the goat for the second time, let’s got on with it. Rather predictably, the sly fox clambered to freedom and left the goat down the well…
We can (almost) guarantee the office water cooler is not somewhere where  foxes, goats or even humans can get stuck. We still think we should follow the moral of the story, though.
