Workplace Stories: In the eyes of your Boss, It's a Dog's life after all

Workplace StoriesA 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, behold, a ten dollar bill. 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. 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 guy. "What in heaven's name are you doing? The Dog is a genius. He could be on TV!" 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 boss's expectations! It's a Dog's life after all.

After 2 years of selfless service, a man realized that he has not been promoted, no transfer, no salary increase no commendation and that the Company is not doing any thing about it. So he decided to walk up to His HR Manager (Human Resources Manager) one morning and after exchanging greetings, he told his HR Manager his observation. HR Manager looked at him, laughed and asked him to sit down saying. My friend, you have not worked here for even one day.

The man was surprised to hear this, but HR Manager went on to explain.

HR Manager: How many hours make up a day?
Man: 24 hours

HR Manager: How long do you work in a day?
Man: 8am to 4pm. i.e. 8 hours a day

HR Manager: So, what fraction of the day do you work in hours?
Man: He did some arithmetic and said 8/24 hours i.e. 1/3, one third

HR Manager: That is nice of you! What is one third of 366 days?
Man: 122 (1/3 X 366 = 122 in days)

HR Manager: Do you come to work on weekends?
Man: No sir

HR Manager: How many days are there in a year that is weekends?
Man: 52 Saturdays and 52 Sundays equals to 104 days

HR Manager: Thanks for that. If you remove 104 days from 122 days, how many days do you now have?

Workplace Stories: Washerman (Dhobi) and Two Donkeys story

Washerman (Dhobi) and Two DonkeysOnce upon a time a washerman was bringing up two donkeys (Donkey-A and Donkey-B).

Donkey-A felt it was very energetic and could do better than the other. So, it always tries to impress the washerman by taking more loads and walking fast in front of him.

Donkey-B is normal, so it will walk normal, carry normal load in the presence and absence of washerman.

After a period of time, washerman started pressurizing Donkey-B to be like Donkey-A. But Donkey-B unable to walk fast; got continuous punishment from washerman. One day while crying disclosed to Donkey-A, "Dear friend, only we are two here, why should we compete with each other, but instead, we can carry equal load at normal speed ".

This made Donkey-A more energetic and next day it start carrying more loads and even it starts walking faster. Washerman pleased more with Donkey-A, and at the same time start punishing Donkey-B more.

Next day with smile, Donkey-A carried more load and started running fast. But it was breathtaking for Donkey-B and it could not act that way. But the washerman was frustrated, so he harassed Donkey-B terribly and finally it fell down hopelessly.

Then Donkey-A felt itself as a supreme and happily started carrying more load at greater speed. But now the Load of the Donkey-B is also being carried by Donkey-A., and still it has to run fast. For some time it managed, finally due to fatigue it got tired and started feeling the pain, but washerman expecting more from Donkey-A. It also tried best, but couldn't cope up with his owners demand. The Washerman got angry with Donkey-A also and started harassing to take more load. Donkey-A was carrying for long time and then tried its best. But it couldn't meet the owner's demand. Finally the day came when due to frustration the washerman killed Donkey-A, and went for searching some other Donkey.

Moral of the story: "Think all colleagues are same and that everyone is capable of doing the same work. Always share the load equally. Don't ever act smart in front of your Boss and never try getting more credit. Don't feel happy when your colleague is under pressure." It doesn't matter if you are A or B, for the Boss you shall always be a Donkey. And most importantly, never work hard, work cleverly.

Interesting Workplace facts: A great lesson from a simple story of Horse and Goat

story of Horse and GoatThere was a farmer who had a Horse and a Goat. One day, the Horse became ill and farmer called the Veterinarian, who said: Well, your Horse has a virus. He must take this medicine for three days. I will come back on the 3rd day and if he's not better, we have to put him down. Nearby, the Goat listened closely to their conversation.

Next day, they gave him the medicine and left. The Goat approached the Horse and said: Be strong, my friend. Get up or else they are going to put you to sleep!

On the second day, they gave him the medicine and left. The Goat came back and said: Come on buddy, get up or else you are going to die! Come on, I will help you get up. Let's go! One, two, three!

On the third day, they came to give him the medicine and the Veterinarian said: Unfortunately, we are going to have to put him down tomorrow. Otherwise, the virus might spread and infect the other Horses. After they left, the Goat approached the Horse and said: Listen pal, it's now or never! Get up, come on! Have courage! Come on! Get up! That's it, slowly! Great! Come on, one, two, three! Good. Now faster, come on, Fantastic! Run, run more! Yes! You did it, you are a champion!

The Horse got up with tremendous effort. After some more encouragement from the Goat, he trotted and then galloped.

All of a sudden, the farmer came back, saw the Horse running in the field and began shouting: It's a miracle! My Horse is cured. We must have a grand party. Let's kill the Goat!

Moral of the story: This often happens in the workplace. Nobody truly knows which employee actually deserves the merit of success, or who's actually contributing the necessary support to make things happen.

Remember: Learning to live without recognition is a skill! So, if anyone ever tells you that your work is unprofessional, then remember: Amateurs built the Ark [which saved all the species] and professionals built the Titanic [all died tragically].
