Finally God created Man and told him: "You will be Man, the only rational being on this earth. You will use your intelligence to control other animals; you will dominate the world and will live for 21 years."
And the Man answered: "God, I will be Man, but living 21 years is not enough. Why not give me the 30 years that the donkey refused, the 15 years that the dog did not want, and the 10 years given up by the monkey."
After some consideration, God decided to grant man his request.
As a result, Man today lives 21 years as a man. Then he marries and spends 30 years like a donkey, working and carrying heavy loads. Then when his children are grown and gone, he spends 15 years looking after his house and eating whatever is given to him. Finally, when he has grown old, he retires and spends the next 10 years like a monkey, jumping from house to house or from children to children, doing silly things to amuse the grandchildren.
