Intelligence and Expectations...
A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised when he saw a dog
coming inside the shop. He shoos him away. But later, the dog is back again.
So, he goes over to the dog and notices he has a note in his mouth. He takes
the note and it reads "Can I have 12 sausages and a leg of lamb, please".
The dog has money in his mouth, as well. The butcher looks inside and, look
and behold, there is a ten dollar note there. So he takes the money and puts
the sausages and lamb in a bag, placing it in the dog's mouth.
The butcher is so impressed, and since it's about closing time, he decides
to shut up shop and follow the dog. So off he goes. The dog is walking down
the street when he comes to a level crossing. The dog puts down the bag,
jumps up and presses the button. Then he waits patiently, bag in mouth, for
the lights to turn. They do, and he walks across the road, with the butcher
following him all the way. The dog then comes to a bus stop, and starts
looking at the timetable. The butcher is in awe at this stage. The dog
checks out the times, and then sits on one of the seats provided. Along
comes a bus. The dog walks around to the front, looks at the number, and
goes back to his seat.
Another bus comes. Again the dog goes and looks at the number, notices it's
the right bus, and climbs on. The butcher, by now, open-mouthed, follows him
onto the bus. The bus travels through the town and out into the suburbs, the
dog looking at the scenery.
Eventually he gets up, and moves to the front of the bus. He stands on 2
back paws and pushes the button to stop the bus. Then he gets off, his
groceries still in his mouth.
Well, dog and butcher are walking along the road, and then the dog turns
into a house. He walks up the path, and drops the groceries on the step.
Then he walks back down the path, takes a big run, and throws himself
against the door. He goes back down the path, runs up to the door and again,
it throws himself against it. There's no answer at the house, so the dog
goes back down the path, jumps up on a narrow wall, and walks along the
perimeter of the garden. He gets to the window, and beats his head against
it several times, walks back, jumps off, and waits at the door. The butcher
watches as a big guy opens the door, and starts abusing the dog, kicking him
and punching him, and swearing at him. The butcher runs up, and stops the
"What in heaven's name are you doing? The dog is a genius. He could be on
TV, for the life of me!"
To which the guy responds: "You call this clever? This is the second time
this week that this stupid dog's forgotten his key."
Moral of the story..... You may continue to exceed onlookers' expectations
but shall always fall short of the bosses' expectations
