  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 173. The proverb today is why keep a dog

  • and bark yourself. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here.If someone says why

  • keep a dog and bark yourself or don't keep a dog and bark yourself. So you

  • could say it either way. It means why or why are you doing the work that you

  • already paid someone else to do or that you hired someone else to do ? Why are you

  • doing that work ? That's for that person that you hired. Okay. Let's continue. The

  • proverb dates back until at least the 1500's . So you know, we're going back 400 or

  • 500 years and one of the earliest known cittings is from Brian Melbancks in

  • one of his novels and here's the quote and you will notice that there are you

  • know some words were spelled differently back in the 1500s. So if you see

  • some words spelled differently here, just realize this was probably like Middle

  • English. "It's a small reason you should keep a dog and bark yourself." So that was

  • the original quote that it came from. Or at least that we know of. That's the

  • earliest citting that we know of. All right. And we have two examples here. And the

  • first one of course here this is an a/b. So Jennifer has a maid but she is too

  • embarrassed for anyone to see her house messy. So she actually cleans up before

  • the maid comes over. Or at least partially cleans up. And of course B says

  • here. You must be kidding. Don't keep a dog and bark yourself. So that's again a

  • perfect example of this. Or number two. In business manager training class or

  • classes , they want you to learn how to distribute the work to one's staff. But

  • they stress, you shouldn't be using your time on less important work. And they

  • might you know, say this line as well. They warn. Why keep a dog and bark

  • yourself. So that's what you hired those people for.

  • You hired them to help you. So distribute that work, so that you have time for more

  • important matters or more important managing. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I

  • hope was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
