The Story of the Four

This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. 

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. 
Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. 
Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job.
Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. 
It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
(This was a text once published in the Reader's Digest magazine. Not aware of the writer.)


  1. This reminded me something else aswell...


    Caller : Hello, can I speak to Annie Wan (anyone)?

    Operator : Yes, you can speak to me.

    Caller : No, I want to speak to Annie Wan (anyone)!

    Operator : Who is this?

    Caller : I’m Sam Wan (Someone). And I need to talk to Annie Wan (anyone)! It’s urgent.

    Operator : I know you are someone and you want to talk to anyone! But what’s this urgent matter about?

    Caller : Well, just tell my sister Annie Wan (anyone) that our brother Nol Wan (no one) has involved in an accident. Nol Wan (no one) got injured and now Nol Wan (no one) is being sent to the hospital. Right now, Avery Wan (everyone) is on way to the hospital.

    Operator : Look if no one was injured and no one was sent to the hospital, then the accident isn’t an urgent matter! You may find this hilarious but I don’t have time for this!

    Caller : You are so rude! Who are you?

    Operator : I’m Saw Lee (Sorry).

    Caller : Yes! You should be sorry. Now give me your name!!
