The Gnat and the Bull

A Gnat once lit on a Bull's horn, and stayed there a long while.

When he was about to fly away, he asked the Bull if he would like to have him go now.

"Why," said the Bull, "I did not know you were there."

People often think themselves important when, in truth, no one is noticing them.
