A father and his two sons


Pernahakah anda mengeluh???.......
 Kebanyakan orang pernah mengeluh, hanya segelintir orang saja yang tidak pernah mengeluh, karena terkadang manusia belum memahami dibalik semua itu. Seorang laki-laki pernah mengeluh kepada temannya (Curhat gitu......) kemudian temannya menjawab : "seandainya mengeluh itu dibayar maka andalah orang yang paling kaya". 
Seperti cerita Narrative teks bahasa inggris berikut, seorang anak menegeluh kepada ayahnya karena dia belum mengerti, untuk lebih tahu lebih lanjutnya langsung saja baca cerita berikut:
Two sons worked for their father on the family's farm. The younger son had been given more responsibility and reward than the elder one for a few years. So, one day the elder son asked his father to explain the different treatment.
The father said, "First, please go to Kelly's farm and see if they have any geese for sale. We need to add to our stock."
The elder son soon returned with the answer,
"Yes, they have five geese they can sell to " us'
The father then said, "Good. Then, would you ask them the price?"
The son returned with the answer, "The geese are $10 each, Dad."
The father said, "Okay. Now could you ask them whether they can deliver the geese tomorrow?"
The son duly returned with the answer, "Yes, they can deliver the geese tomorrow."
Then, the father asked his elder son to wait and listen and called the younger one from a nearby field and asked, "Would you go to Davidson's Farm and see if they have any geese for sale? We need to add to our stock."
The younger son soon returned with the answer, "Yes, they have five geese for $10 each, or ten geese for $8 each and they can deliver them tomorrow.
I asked them to deliver five unless they heard otherwise from us in the next hour. They also agreed that if we want the extra five geese, we can buy them at $6 each."
The father turned to his elder son, who nodded his head in appreciation–he now realized why his younger brother was given more responsibility and reward.
