One night, just before the shopkeeper closed for
the day, a dog came into the shop, having a bag
in its mouth. The bag had a list of items to be
bought and money so the shopkeeper took the
money and kept the items in the bag.
Immediately, The dog picked up the bag of items
and left. The shopkeeper was surprised and went
behind the dog to see who the owner was.The dog
waited at the bus stop, After sometime, a bus came
and the dog got into the bus. As soon as the
conductor came, it moved forward to show his neck
belt which had money and the address as well.
The conductor took the money and put the ticket in
his neck belt again.
When it reached the destination, the dog went to
the front and wagged his tail indicating that he
wanted to get down, the moment the bus stopped,
it got down. The shopkeeper was still following it.
The dog knocked on the door of a house with its
legs. Its owner came from inside and beat it with a
The shocked shopkeeper asked him “why are you
beating the dog?”, to which the owner replied, “he
disturbed my sleep. It could have taken the keys
with it.”
This is the truth of life. There is no end to the
expectations people have from you. The moment
you go wrong, they start pointing at our mistakes.
All the good done in the past are quickly forgotten.
Any small mistake committed gets magnified. You
can do 100 things for people but once you do a
little mistake they forget all that you have done for
them. They capitalize on that your little mistake to
hold it against you whereas they themselves ain’t
perfect. The owner of the dog had no idea of what
his dog went through to get those stuffs yet instead
of appreciation it got beating.
Most people have no idea of what you have gone
through in life to make them happy or please them
but at the end of it all, instead of them appreciating
you or complement you they end up looking for
faults and mistakes from you just to discredit you.
This is the kind of society we live in…

  • What a great piece, people dont really know what we pass through to make them happy, but all in all, we still have to continue doing what we know how to do best.
