A fisherman and his wife lived poorly by the sea. One day the fisherman caught a flounder and he promised the fisherman to grant him wishes, if he was willing to let him go. The man in our story did so but forgot to take advantage of the wish. The wife was however greedier so she asked for a cottage. And she got it. But it was not enough. Then she asked for a castle. But still it was not enough. And she kept asking for more and more. Do you think she was satisfied in the end? Do you agree that it is wrong to not express gratitude?
