People compare someone with a donkey

  1. Aug 14, 2008 #1
    Not only in English do I see people compare someone with a donkey, in my native language it too is used the same

    Why does someone compare me with a donkey ? I think I am pretty smart

    Donkeys are quite smart infact...

    Its probably the fact that they are or can be very stubborn.

    Why do you think it is stubborn ? it doesn't accept to do what someone tells it, that is not stubborn, only refusing.

    maybe the only reason they called you that is because someone called 'them' that before---don't worry about if you can---often people call other people names is because of 'projection' ---look it up on wiki
