A man seeking help went to see the Buddha.

A man seeking help went to see the Buddha.
He told the Buddha he was a farmer.
"I like farming but sometimes it rains too much and then not enough and one year we nearly starved."
"I like my wife but sometimes she nags too much and my children are good but they don't show enough respect,and...."
the man went on and on.
The Buddha sat through all the farmers problems and finally when he finished the Buddha said;
"I am sorry I can't help you"
"Everyone has problems,
in fact we all have eighty three problems"
The Buddha then told them all to the farmer from birth to death.
The Buddha finally said that he may be able to help the man with the eighty fourth problem.
"What's the eighty fourth problem?" asked the farmer.
"The problem of wanting to not have problems"
replied the Buddha.
