In ancient times, a king had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge stone.
Some of the king’s merchants and officials came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way.
Then a farmer came along carrying a load of vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, he laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. While picking up his load of vegetables, the farmer noticed a small bag lying on the road where the boulder had been.
The bag contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the obstacle from the roadway.
