A man fell into a well and several people passing by heard his cries. They tried to pull him out but the man wouldn’t grab the fingers, ropes, buckets, pulleys…everything that was sent down to help. Instead he shouted for a thicker rope, wider seat, longer hand. His good samaritans eventually departed in frustration and the man was left alone.
This is the ultimate end to one who refuses to grow up. The individual dies in the well s/he fell into. Bitter that no-one stayed to help, s/he doesn’t realize the multiple opportunities swung in his/her direction because pride demanded that help show up a certain way.
