The man and his wife felt that the critics were right, So they exchanged positions.
Then, later, they crossed some people who commented, 'What a disgrace, the old man makes his wife to walk.'

Soon they crossed some more people who commented that, they both were stupids to walk when they had such a healthy and decent donkey to ride. So, they again considered their comments and both rode the donkey.
Now they crossed some people who commented them by saying, how terrible to put such a heavy load on a poor donkey.Man and his wife again considered their comments and decided to carry the donkey.
As they both crossed the bridge, they lost their hold on the animal, fell into the river and drowned.
