Fox and The Goat

Once a fox was roaming around in the dark. Unfortunately, he fell into a well. He tried his level best to come out but all in vain. So, he had no other alternative but to remain there until the next morning. The next day, a goat came that way. She peeped into the well and saw the fox there. The goat asked, “what are you doing there, Mr. Fox?”

The sly fox replied, “I came here to drink water. It is the best I have ever tasted. Come and see for yourself.” Without thinking even for a while, the goat jumped into the well, quenched her thirst and looked for a way to get out. But just like the fox, she also found herself helpless to come out.

Then the fox said, “I have an idea. You stand on your hind legs. I’ll climb on your head and get out. Then I shall help you come out too.” The goat was innocent enough to understand the shrewdness of the fox and did as the fox said and helped him get out of the well.

While walking away, the fox said, “Had you been intelligent enough, you would never have got in without seeing how to get out.”

Moral: Look before you leap. Β Do not just blindly walk in to anything without thinking.

    I think “HELP” in the following sentence in the story (3rd paragraph) must be corrected by “HELPED”.

    The goat was innocent enough to understand the shrewdness of the fox and did as the fox said and help >>>>him<<<< get out of the well.

    Am I right????

    They forgot to say that the fox didn’t help the goat, without that the ending doesn’t really explain why the goat should of not trusted the fox according to the story the fox could of helped the goat, we don’t know, but I have read another source luckily so this needs a fixing and with other stories,I hope that the website owners fix all the errors of the stories because it might be time comsuming ,but then people don’t have to write down all the right things on the paper after printing it and the website could become more popular for having no errors.OH MY GOSH THIS IS ONE LONG COMMENT I DO HOPE THE WEB OWNERS READ THE COMMENTS OR I AM A BIG IDIOT! Any way please just regard this enormas comment I mean you even have to scroll down.DON NOT GET THE WRONG IDEA I LOVE THIS WEBSITE AND THE STORIES AND THIS ONE A LOT!Thank you to those who are still reading this.DANG WHAT A LONG COMMENT! 0_0 I have a proplem with writing comments!
