A storekeeper is arranging the items on the rack, is a bit surprised when he sees a dog coming inside the shop, he shoos him away. But later, the dog is back inside again. So he goes over to the dog and notices that it has a note tied to its neck. He takes the note and it reads “Please give 2 packets of cigarette & a lighter. The money is with the dog.” The storekeeper looks inside the dogs mouth and to his surprise there is a $10 note in its mouth. So he takes the money and puts the cigarette & lighter and change in a bag, and then places it in the dogs mouth.
The storekeeper is so impressed, and since it is the closing time, he decides to follow the dog. The dog is walking down the street, when it comes to the zebra crossing, he waits till the signal turns green. He walks across the road till the bus stop. He waits on the stop and looks up the timetable for the bus. The storekeeper is totally out of his mind as the dog gets into the bus and sits on a vacant seat. The storekeeper follow the dog. The dog waits for the conductor to come to his seat. He gives the change to the conductor and shows him the neck belt to keep the ticket. The storekeeper is almost fainting at this sight and so are the other people in the bus.
The dog then moves to the front exit of the door and waits for the bus stop to arrive, looking outside. As soon as the stop is in sight he wags his tail to inform the driver to stop. Then not even waiting for the bus stop to arrive the dog jumps out and runs to the house nearby. It opens an big iron gate and rushes towards the door. As it approaches the door, he changes his mind and walks towards the garden. The dog walks up to the window and beats his head several times on the window. It then walks back to the door and waits. The storekeeper maintaining his senses walks up to the door and watched a big guy open the door.
The guy starts beating, kicking and abusing the dog. The storekeeper is surprised and runs to stop the guy. The storekeeper questions the guy “What in the heaven are you doing? The dog is a genius he could be famous in life.”
The guy responds “You call this clever? This is the 3rd time in this week that the dog has forgotten the door keys.”
The moral of the story: “You may continue to exceed onlookers expectations, but will always fall short of the boss’ expectation”
