One morning a butcher was surprised to see a dog enter his shop with a note in his mouth. He took the note and it read  “Can I have twelve sausages and a leg of lamb, please?” The dog had money on his mouth, as well. So the butcher took the money and put the sausages and mat in a bag, placing it in the dog’s mouth. The butcher was impressed, and since it was closing time, he decided to follow the dog.

The dog was walking down the street when he came to level crossing, he put down the bag, jumped up and pressed the button. Then he waited patiently, bag in the mouth, for the lights to turn green. When they did, he walked across the road, with butcher following him.

The dog then came to a bus stop and started looking at timetable. He the sat on one of the seats provided and waited. Along came a bus. The dog walked round to the front, looked at the number, and went back to his seat. Another bus came along. Again the dog went and looked the number, notice it was right bus, and climbed on. The butcher, by now, open-mouthed, followed him onto the bus. The bus traveled through the town and out into the suburbs, the dog looking at the scenery. Eventually he got up and moved to the front of the bus. He stood on two back paws and pushed the button to stop the bus. When the bus stopped, he got off, his groceries still in his mouth. The butcher followed.

Finally dog turned into a house. He walked up the path, and dropped the bag on the step. Then he rang the doorbell. There was no response from inside. The dog walked back down the path, then ran and flung the door, himself against the door. The butcher watches, big guy opens the door and start abusing the dog, kicking him and punching him and swearing at him.

The butcher runs forward and stops the man, “What in heaven’s name are you doing? This dog is genius.”

The man responds: “ you call this clever ? This is the second time this week that this stupid dog forgotten his key”


You may continue to exceed onlooker’s expectations but you will always falls short of bosses’ expectations
