Dog’s Can’t Read

Sunday 16 September 2007 @ 7:57 pm

This past week there has been quite the stir in our neighborhood. Through the block we have some neighbors that have a beautiful yard. This yard is meticulously groomed and each fall planters full of Canna lily flowers make a magnificent showing. This yard truly is amazing and there is with out question significant effort that takes place to keep this yard a show piece. this being said, my gardening neighbors really lost sign of reality.

I do not know the specific dog(s) that promoted the infamous “Signs” to be posted, but this past week 3 professionally created signs appeared in the front of their yard. The signs read:

Yard Is Not A Toilet

“KEEP DOG(S) OFF GRASS”

“THIS YARD IS NOT A TOILET FOR YOUR DOG(S)”

“KEEP DOG(S) OFF GRASS”

The following day in the neighbors yard directly across the street a poster board sign with lettering in magic marker placed in the gourd with a shovel appeared. Keep in mind that this neighbor does not own a dog. The sign reads:

“DOG’S CAN’T READ”

Dog's Can't Read

There are so many management metaphors associated with this little story I don’t even know where begin so in spirit of allowing you to simply have a really good belly laugh like I did, we will simply leave it with this. Next time you feel inclined to do something really absurd in your business, remember

“DOG’S CANT READ!
