The Wolf and The Lamb

Once upon a time a Wolf was lapping at a spring on a hillside, when, looking up, what should he see but a Lamb just beginning to drink a little lower down.

"There's my supper," thought he, "if only I can find some excuse to seize it."

Then he called out to the Lamb, "How dare you muddle the water from which I am drinking?"

"Nay, master, nay," said Lambikin; "if the water be muddy up there, I cannot be the cause of it, for it runs down from you to me."

"Well, then," said the Wolf, "why did you call me bad names this time last year?"

"That cannot be," said the Lamb; "I am only six months old."

"I don't care," snarled the Wolf; "if it was not you it was your father;" and with that he rushed upon the poor little Lamb and ate her all up. But before she died she gasped out."Any excuse will serve a tyrant."

Moral of the story: A tyrant and bully will find any excuse to get what they want.

We've all met up with this type of person. You can not reason with them, for they will search their minds for all kinds of excuses to use against you, in order force their belief onto you. Learn to recognize this type of temperament and don't bother to argue or refute their statements. You'll never win. The best course of action is to walk away
