Scorpions.




" A scorpion, being a very poor swimmer, asked a turtle to carry him on his back across a river. “Are youmad?” exclaimed the turtle. “You’ll sting me while I am swimming and I will drown.”


“My dear turtle,” laughed the scorpion, “if I were to sting you, you would drown and I would go down with you. Now where is the logic in that?”


“You’re right!” reasoned the turtle. “Hop on!” The scorpion climbed aboard and halfway across the river gave the turtle a mighty sting. As they both sank to the bottom, the turtle resignedly said:


“Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there would be no logic in your stinging me. Why did you do it?”


“It has nothing to do with logic,” the drowning scorpion sadly replied. 

“IT IS JUST MY CHARACTER.”

So it is with some humans. No matter how nice or good you maybe to them, it is just in their nature and character to sting (betray, rob, cheat, hurt, kill, blackmail etc) for no reason.



I read this post on SDK's blog and it got me thinking. I think we've all met scorpions. I certainly have, unfortunately. It's that maid whose life and family you turned around yet robbed you blind and put your family at risk. It's the friend who you loved wholeheartedly and wished nothing but the best yet they peddled lies about you and stabbed you not in the back, but in the chest. It's that lover that you made sacrifices for, gave your love, your body, soul and money, yet all that time their hearts were with someone else and when time came they dumped you without as much as a second glance. 

Am I the only one who's wondered why some people are inherently bad and inclined to do bad, no matter how good you've been to them? Have you met anyone like this? Why are they the way they are...

May your week & life be scorpion free.
