Stupid Dog At Bowling Alley Teaches Us About Mistakes

This video proves that some dogs aren’t the brightest, but they are so cute you love them anyway. Take one part curiosity and mix it with fear and a refusal to give up, and you have this Border Collie interacting with this buzzing sensor in a bowling alley. The poor guy is terrified every time the buzzer goes off, yet it foolishly keeps going right in to check it out. Something tells me this dog should be kept away from things that are actually dangerous.
Who honestly can’t relate with this dog? We all make mistakes from time to time, and as our friends would attest, it's often the same mistakes over and over again. The first time you go in, of course there’s no fear, and then when things go south you freak out because it all came out of nowhere…
Here’s the clincher though, you’ve done it before. If you hadn’t. your friends (cameraman) wouldn’t be on hand to see it all go down. You of course are oblivious to all of it and wonder how you could’ve been so jaded. You vow never to make the mistake again and go about your life, but the pain subsides and soon enough you find yourself going in again to see if the outcome will be the same. Spoiler alert…
You’re dumbfounded at your own stupidity. How could you have possibly done that yet again? You hit an emotional low and follow up your mistake with several other ones. This convinces you that your life is actually better than when you were just with doing what you normally did. Surely life can’t be any worse than it is now, right?
No, and you were an idiot for thinking otherwise. This is usually the point where most sane individuals recognize that yes they are making the same mistake time and time again and maybe it’s time to switch it up. They turn things around and really surprise their friends and family with how different they are. There is the special breed of person. however, who only rides off the emotion of the past hurts and mistakes it for nostalgia, or all they’ve ever known. They brace themselves, swallow their pride, and…
Who would’ve thought a stupid dog in a video could provide such insightful social commentary about the human condition?
