The Man and the Bear

A MAN ONCE saved a bear from death. The bear then became his devoted protector and companion.

One day, the man was resting under a tree. The bear stood guard. He chased away the flies from the man’s face. They persisted in coming so the bear, getting frustrated, picked up a rock and threw it at the flies.

It got rid of the flies, but as they were sitting on the man’s face at the time, it got rid of him as well.

What’s the moral? Do not take fools as friends. They might sincerely wish to do you good but ultimately could end up bringing you disaster.
