Everyone knows that ants are usually very hardworking. Well, the ant of our story was even more. She worked with such enthusiasm that her companions said:
— It works, yes, but with account, weight and measure. Don't pass out! one said to him.
— What nonsense! Looks like she wants to fix the world by herself! exclaimed another, amazed at her weariness.
No one could convince the ant to work more calmly. However, one day the ant dragged some bread crumbs that it had found to the community store. She shoved her load so hard, she hit her head against a rock. What a big cock she made!
The ant was so terrified that it ran away from work, fearing that something might happen to it again. Whenever her companions called her to do some errand, she ran to hide.
The head of the warehouse had to call her to his office to convince her to change her behavior. The ant headed there, calmly. Before, however, reaching the door of the room, half distracted, she stepped on a bucket of cleaning and went nose to the floor. A colossal hit!
The ant understood then that his fear was not justified. Anywhere, whether in or out of work, anyone can get hurt. The important thing is to pay attention and take some precautions to avoid accidents. From that day onwards, the ant reintegrated into its work post, and returned to being the working ant.
