The stolen berries

Everyone likes a nice person, and most of us try to be good in our own lives. Why is it, then, that there are so few people in the world who are good all the time? As hard as may try, there are always those rotten days and moments of weakness where it just feels better to be bad.

The key to becoming a truly good person is in accepting the bad parts of your own personality and admitting that you're not perfect, not in trying to act like a saint while the devil on your shoulder whispers in your ear..

On a stroll through the countryside, you come across a field of delicious-looking strawberries. Your stomach starts to rumble, and there's no one else around. Only a fence stands between you and a free lunch. How high is that fence?

You sneak into the garden and begin to help yourself to the fruit. How many berries do you eat?

Suddenly the farmer whose berries you're stealing appears out of nowhere and starts yelling at you. What do you say in your won defence?

After all is said and done, how did the berries taste? And looking back, how did you feel after your berry-stealing adventure was over?

I would see a fence that was low and jump over and eat a few. They were good and then when I see the farmer I would apologize and offer some way of making it even so he could be happy too!

The fence is above my knee, I would eat only 5 pieces of the berries, I will tell the farmer that I am sorry and I can't help not to eat those because I'm hungry, the berries taste sweet and i would feel guilty.

The fence was over my head so I had to climb it to get in. I had maybe three or four, I don't particularly like strawberries, but I was hungry. The farmer came and started shouting. At first I said I apologise, but was hungry and pointed out that he had a massive field of strawberries and I only took three out of the thirty thousand that he had growing, appealing to their humanity. They continued to shout, so I insulted them and gave them the finger. I told them that the strawberries are owned by the Earth and that the claim they have over them is imaginary. I left challenging them as to what they would do about it. They tasted ok, but after the fracas they tasted better.

The fence is taller than I, menacing, but all it's done is slow me down considerably. I'd only eat 1 or 2, due to my own unease, before the farmer comes along. I'd hang my head, unable to answer anything back except for 'I'm sorry.' Thinking back, the strawberries weren't sweet, instead, sour, filling my mouth. Just taking a bite, I no longer wished to eat. It only had appease my hunger.

The fence was only up to my knees with wide enough openings I could stick my hand through without having to go over it lol.
I ate 5 berries.
I said "I'm sorry, I was really hungry. I will pay for the berries I ate".
They tasted wonderful because they were organic and fresh.
I feel great since I got to meet the Farmer. We made friends and he even gave me more berries for free to take with me.

1. The fence is about waist high and is made of simple wooden planks as you would see in the countryside.
2. I ate about 2-3 strawberries. They were about the size of a regular organic strawberry. Not very sizable at all.
3. When the farmer comes to yell at me, I apologize and say that I only wanted to taste them because I was so hungry and I was curious about their taste, but I'm really sorry and I shouldn't have trespassed. I don't offer him compensation because I don't feel like anything can really make up for it except maybe my sincerity.
4. The strawberries were sweet but tart at the same time as strawberries always taste to me. It's sort of a mediocre taste. I only ate them to placate my hunger a small amount. But getting yelled at and disappointing someone sours the whole experience, so I feel mostly regret, with just a hint of satisfaction at having done it.

None of this reflects my values on adultery. I would never allow myself to be in a situation in which I would cultivate the desire to do such a terrible thing for my own selfishness. This was just about strawberries that were growing on a bush that had many to offer, so sparing a few for a hungry traveler didn't seem that unfair.

It all was on a country side. The fence was high enough, above my head of course which was made out of barbed wires. It looked like almost impossible to cross over without hurting myself. I can't imagine how, but I managed to get past it somehow. Just because those berries looked mesmerizing bit odder than the fact that it was actually delicious and I was starving like hell.
The berries were big as my fist and I had four of it. Then I saw the farmer came towards me shouting. I did the wrong thing, but I don't know why he seemed like a bad man. I was trying to convince him (but I tried to kept my safe distance at every instance from him)that I was starving and only meant to take for my hunger, nothing more. But he wouldn't listen and he kept yelling at me. So I ran away from him.
I was carrying two in my hand. I was saving it for my family. Then suddenly, I felt bad and guilt which I never had even when I stole it from someone. That I had two and I'm bringing only one for each of them feeling I should've eat only one and bring three home,so they can have more than me. Feeling heavy in my mind, I walked slowly home.

P.S: I don't think anyone wwould have the time to analyze this. But if you do, I have this problem.
I do things differently and I'm an admirer of perfection just for, to say things like those berries things that moves me, things that fantasies me. Apart from the that, I'm a lazy person. But things eventually end up in disaster. People say, my obsession caused it. But most of the time it wasn't my fault. But we can't just do every thing. Right? We have to trust that we're depending the pioneer in the business. But when it comes to me, they fails, not to my expectation but their own reputation.
Now I'm living having no purpose at all. I did everything for my family, But they treat me bad. But we can't just stop doing certain things for certain people even if they don't deserve it. I couldn't even complete my studies. When I had my shot, I tried everything so hard. Hard that you can't even imagine. I hard labored twelve hours a day, Gave up my sleep and rest to my dreams come true. But everyone's negligence took everything from me. Finally, I gave up myself for exhaustion.

The fence was almost shoulder high and was made of wooden posts and barbed wire. See through but hard to get through. Somehow I got to the other side. I ate enough to hold in two hands. So maybe 3-5? They were okay, I felt fulfilled I guess. I told the farmer I was sorry, I was hungry and ate, and please forgive me but didn't grovel. Felt either he forgives me or he doesn't. Either way all I can do is genuinely ask for it and be on my way. Accepting the outcome.

There was nearly no fence..only some small stones to mark the field.

I am really sorry, I was starving and the strawberries were so eye-catching and looked so good. (big, bright, juicy red strawberries..hmmm)
That was a so exciting and satisfying moment but I regret doing it though.

The fence was quite low.
I ate too many because I was very hungry and they all tasted good.
"Well, there are so many of them. What if i ate some??" This was my reply.
The berries were quite good and added some fun to my journey.
Finally, I felt that the day I stole to berries and was caught was one hell of a day.

The fence is atleast the height of my waiste line.

I do not actually eat food specially plants which i am not certain of if poisonous or what. but if that is a true berry..i will atleast taste only one.

Not very high, I could reach the strawberries by sticking hand through it. It was just some barbed wire with big openings in between the wires.

I eat till I'm full.

I don't say anything in my own defense. I run as fast as I can.

Berries tasted sweet and fresh. Got a bit of adrenalin rush going on.

The fence was knee-height, maybe lower, and I could freely bend over to snatch a few.
I ate 2-3 berries.
When the farmer came, I didn't leave so as not to look too guilty. I just complimented that person for the tasty berries that have, and ask if I can't have more.
I thought the berry was yummy, like how berries usually taste like. And I thought that I shoudl've eaten more, maybe even pocketed them.

The fence's height is average my hip, made from a pine wood, cut and shaped with an excellent precision and connected to each part with finest wood nail.
I ate one, only, just to satisfied my curiousity over the well grown strawberries.
My defense will be I was tempted by the look of the strawberries and wonder if it's as good as it's look, and yes it is. As a return, I told the farmer that I'd help to sell the strawberries since I'm broke.
Isn't that a good deal?
