     The Ass and his Masters
There was an Ass who belonged to an herb-seller who gave him too little food and too much work to do. So he made a request to Jupiter to be released from his present service and provided with another master.

  Jupiter, after warning him that if he would fulfill his request, then this may cause him to be sold to a tile-maker.

 After a little time, finding that he had heavier loads to carry and harder work in the brick-field, he requested for another master.

 Jupiter, telling him that it would be the last time that he could grant his request, but he would be be sold to a tanner.

The Ass found that he had fallen into worse hands, and noting his master's occupation, said, groaning: "It would have been better for me to have been either starved by the one, or to have been overworked by the other of my ex-masters, than to have been bought by my present owner, who will even after I am dead tan my hide, and make me useful to him."
