In case you forgot...

Today in Monteripido's kitchen I noticed a sign while cooking. After reading it I couldn't help but smile. One of my older cousins once posted a paper in my room with the same message (the only difference being the language).

Here it is in Italian: Questa è la storia di 4 persone chiamate Ognuno, Qualcuno, Ciascuno e Nessuno. C'era un lavoro importante da fare e Ognuno era sicuro che Qualcuno lo avrebbe fatto. Ciascuno poteva farlo, ma Nessuno lo fece, Qualcuno si arrabbiò perché era il lavoro di Ognuno. Ognuno pensò che Ciascuno potesse farlo, ma Nessuno capì che Ognuno l'avrebbe fatto. Finì che Ognuno incolpò Qualcuno perché Nessuno fece ciò che Ciascuno avrebbe potuto fare.

And in English: This is a story about 4 people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ends up that Everybody blames Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

I guess I'm meant to never forget. Still being reminded on a different continent!
