Hans in Luck is an interesting story published by the brothers Grimm in the nineteenth Century. This tale is about a man named Hans, who after having served his master for seven years, decided to ask for his wages and return home to see his mother. As a result, the master gave him a big piece of silver and let him go. On his way home, he alternately came across five men that, to his mind were luckier than he was. The first one was riding a horse, which Hans liked so much that he traded it for the silver stone. The second guy that appeared had a cow so Hans changed it for the horse. Then, a third man with a pig showed up and they exchanged their belongings. After that, the same thing happened twice more with a goose and a common stone which Hans got from a grinder.
The story has many different versions, but the message is the same: no matter what life gives people they always want everything the others have. In our modern world, these kind of things happen as usual as in the old times.
