Patience is a Virtue – An Elephant Teaches a Lesson in Patience to Mankind – Feb 2012 South Africa


On Thursday February 19th, a group of folks in a white car, decided that an Elephant was walking WAYYYYYY too slowly in the game reserve in South Africa. Of course the folks in the car forgot that the Game Reserve is where the animals LIVE and we are the visitors there. Nevertheless, the idiots in the car decided that the Elephant could be passed on the road and so they accelerated to do so. What happened next is a good lesson – never mess with an elephant!

Never fight with an Elephant – in HIS/HER territory. Don’t go to the Game Reserves if you are in a hurry.
