Water cooler fables: The dog and the meat
In the last of our office water cooler-friendly fables series, lovingly penned by Aesop to help us avoid falling into tricky situations, we hear about the dog who simply wasn’t willing to accept what he had, and thus lost in whilst striving for something he thought would be even more satisfying; this, of course, turned out to be only an illusion. The greedy dog, with a piece of meat his mouth, passed by a river and saw his reflection in the water, which had been somewhat distorted in size. The pooch, thinking he could see another dog with a larger steak, dived into the river to fight him for the prize and thus eat a bigger fill, only to find his opponent was non-existent, and he lost what he had owned in the first place.
If you would like to strive for a better office water cooler (we can safely say that the consequences will be less disastrous than for our dog friend), please do get in touch and we’ll be able to talk you through our products and services. We look forward to hearing from you!
