Chutzpah: Dogs at work


Chutzpah. This is a word that is used often by myself because sometimes I just can’t believe what people do. I mean really! I thought it would be fun to share our Chutzpah moments. The only rules are no names of stores, people, or events. You may also not use inappropriate language. Leave a comment listing your favorite Chutzpah moment! I mean laughter is the best medicine.

chutzpah Or khutspe. Nerve, extreme arrogance, brazen presumption. In English, chutzpah often connotes courage or confidence, but among Yiddish speakers, it is not a compliment.

I love animals. I however do not like animals that are know biters. I recently went to a local hair salon. I saw a small dog and I really didn’t think much of the dog. That was until my child was having his hair cut and the salon owner explained my other child should not go near the dog since it bites. I kept thinking then pick up the dog and put her in the back until we leave. If you have a dog that is a known biter than it should not be in your place of business when clients are there. If you know your dog bites put a sign on the door. I would have never gone there and I will never go back. If you want to bring your dog to work make sure your dog should not be a danger to children.

  1. You also don’t know who has allergies, or not. It wouldn’t be fair to a coworker who has allergies to pet dander, or better yet a paying customer!

    • If only people would be so hyper-aware of the stinky asthma/allergy-inducing perfumes and smells they wear! I’d take pet dander any day over smokers smell or perfumey ladies!

  2. Yes, in some ways I agree- but also dogs like humans can be shy or anti social- Perhaps “the owner was poleitly saying Dont Bother The Dog And It Wont Bother You”

  3. Agreed–definitely that they are a biter. I tend to be appreciateive of animals at work, but not if you know they aren’t well socialized!

  4. I totally agree. It would definitely make a any business’ clients a lot more comfortable. The clients should be the priority since they’re the ones supporting the business!

    I’ve never used the word chutzpah before, but I’m going to try to use it on something tomorrow. I enjoy expanding my expressive vocabulary :-).

  5. My favorite Chutzpah moments occured during high school by my brother. He was possibly the only guy in our high school to not smoke or drink (some did one or the other or both) and he was made fun of continually for doing his Bible study work in his study hall period (straight A’s) and no matter how many times he was tripped, laughed at etc he stood by his principles and held his head up.

  6. I HATE when people have their dogs running freely at a work place. The general manager of my company brings his dog in, unleashed, quite often. It makes me insane. The dog is friendly &, from what I’ve seen, well behaved but that is not the issue. What about those that are allergic to dogs? What about those that have a fear of dogs? What about those who have dogs of their own and may have the ‘scent’ of their dog on them-how will a new dog react to that?

    I LOVE dogs-I wish I could have one-but I don’t believe they have any place in a business, allowed to roam freely.

  7. This reminds me of a guy that came into my place of employment with his dog. I worked at a financial institution and this guy carried his lapdog in to do his transaction. He then put his dog down. The dog proceeded to poop on our floor! Seriously! How arrogant and rude can you be? I couldn’t believe my eyes. We are not janitors and paid to clean up your dogs mess. AND there is a drive up you can go to and you don’t have to leave your dog in the car.

  8. Owners of dogs that bite need to keep their dogs at home. A place of business or anywhere lots of people could come in contact with their pet are not a good place for an aggressive dog to hang out. I don’t mind dogs in the workplace if it’s a situation where everyone that works there is in agreement that It’s ok. I used to work in a large warehouse with only 5 employees. I took my dog to work occasionally but everyone there loved her and was happy to see her. She loved going to work with me and I kept a little bed for her under my desk. My boss often had his dog there too. The UPS man used to keep a jar of doggie biscuits in his truck for all the dogs on his route. I think it really depends on the temperament of the dog and the atmosphere of the workplace.
