One of the ducks eating mush without a thought for its provider

A man whose family keep ducks has raised concerns that they just walk around the garden thinking they own the place, and show no appreciation whatsoever for anything that is being done on their behalf.

Moys Kenwood, 56, who prepares the ducks' food by pulverising shavings from banana tree trunks until they are a brown mush - backbreaking work, if you don't mind my saying - claims the birds just sit and stare at him whilst he puts all the hard work in, then gobble the mush up without a single word of thanks.

Said Kenwood:

"I feel like I'm being taken for granted. There's no sign of any thanks being shown. Not one small token of appreciation. Not so much as a quack of gratitude."

He went on:

"I feel that I'm being taken advantage of. What would it take for these ungrateful beasts to give some sort of nod of approval? But no. It's as if they just don't care, so long as they get their mush."

None of the ducks were available for comment.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
