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, put the bought items and the change 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 the bus fare 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. That moment the slowed down, stopped and let the dog disembark. The shopkeeper also dropped from the bus and followed it curious to see where it was really going. The dog knocked on the door of a house with its legs. Its owner came from inside and beat it with a huge stick!!!

The shocked shopkeeper asked the man, “Sir, why are you beating your faithful dog?” The man replied with so much pride in his voice and stance, “He disturbed my sleep. It could have taken the keys with it”. Woooow, the shopkeeper just couldn’t believe the cruelty and thanklessness he had just witnessed!!

Life Lesson:
This is the truth of life. There is no end to the expectations people have from you. The moment you do something seemingly wrong, they focusing and pointing only at that mistake. All the good things done in the past are quickly forgotten.

Any small mistake committed gets magnified. You can do a thousand good things for people with little or no mentioning, but once you do just one little mistake you get heavily penalised for such. People capitalize on that your little mistake to hold it against you whereas they themselves aren’t perfect at all.

The owner of the dog had absolutely no idea of what his dog went through to get those goods yet instead of appreciation it got thorough beating.

Likewise, 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.

May you blessed with people who understand, value and appreciate all your efforts.

With thanks!!
