Listen to the Story


Jack was a young man who had just landed his dream job at a software company. He was thrilled to be a part of such a prestigious organization. He worked hard to impress his colleagues and superiors. However, Jack soon started to feel entitled and began to take his job for granted. He would often criticize his boss and complain about the workload. He forgot that he was fortunate to have a job in the first place. One day, Jack's boss asked him to work on an important project for a client. Jack agreed but didn't take the task seriously. He submitted a half-baked project, thinking that he could get away with it. To his surprise, the client was furious with the quality of the work and threatened to terminate the contract. Jack's boss was disappointed and warned him that his actions had consequences. Jack realized his mistake and apologized to his boss and the client. He learned that he should never bite the hands that feed him and that he should always be grateful for the opportunities he had. From then on, Jack worked hard and earned the trust and respect of his colleagues.
