I’d been looking for this story since I started this blog. I wanted to publish it because it’s a short story that says so much. But, I couldn’t find it anywhere because I didn’t know the name of the story. Well, I was finally rewarded for my good deeds when I did my sister a favor and took my niece to the doctor the other day. When I was scheduling her an appointment, I saw it on the Receptionists’ desk. I told her that I’d been looking for it. That’s when she went straight to the copier and made a copy for me. I was so happy. It’s the little things in life that make you the happiest. Finding this story again has made me so happy. Now, I’d love to share it with you.
This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure 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.
