The dog and the bone...

A Dog, to whom the butcher had thrown a bone, was hurrying home with his prize as fast as he could go. As he crossed a narrow footbridge, he happened to look down and saw himself reflected in the quiet water as if in a mirror. But the greedy Dog thought he saw a real Dog carrying a bone much bigger than his own.
If he had stopped to think he would have known better. But instead of thinking, he dropped his bone and sprang at the Dog in the river, only to find himself swimming for dear life to reach the shore. At last he managed to scramble out, and as he stood sadly thinking about the good bone he had lost, he realized what a stupid Dog he had been.

If I am offered a new job tomorrow should I take it.  I feel miserable and isolated working for a large corporate company, I had an interview last Friday which went very well and I will hear tomorrow whether I got it or not!  The company is much smaller, the job has a probation period and it will be a lot of work I have not done before.  However the people are more my age and more outgoing which would help socialise.  Decisions decisions...

Congrats on the interview going so well. Sounds like the new job would be good. It's always nice to get out of the corporate world.

I have decided not to take it. I am better off where I am. Still it was a nice confidence boost.
