One day, a little crab and his mother were on the beach spending some time together. The little crab got up to move, but he could only walk sideways. His mother scolded him and asked him to walk forward by pointing his toes in front of him. “I would like to walk forward, Mom, but I don’t know how to,” the little crab cried.
Hearing this, his mom got up to show him how to walk forward, but she couldn’t do it. She realized that she was being unfair, apologized sheepishly and sat back down in the sand.
Moral: Don’t condemn someone for not doing something that you yourself are unable to do.
