Rotten Mangoes

A mango lover bought a box of dozen of juicy ripe mangoes, just to discover that one of the mango is over-ripe. Not having the heart to throw it away, he consumed it and stored the remaining 11 mangoes for the coming days.

Next day he found that another mango had gone bad, and the poor guy ended up doing the same. Nett result is that out of a box of 11 ripe mangoes he ended up consuming a dozen rotten mangoes.

So many times, to save the best for the future, we spoil our present. Won’t it be better if our man got rid of that lone rotten mango and enjoyed a box of juicy mangoes.
