1. Unbelievably sad and pathetic

The poor dog thought he was playing. How can a grown man be so damned clueless--even if they don't like dogs--to behave like that and doing EVERYTHING possible to make the situation worse. Where did he grow up--in an incubator on Mars?

2. If it's not a fake video, that's quite a dog phobia!

Never seen it to that extent, but I'm obviously aware of phobias for some people.

I had a young female coworker in the past who acted that way about cats. There was a cat near the entrance to the building, and she ran around it while screaming in terror.

The cat didn't even move, but the woman's behavior seemed to fascinate it. Kept looking at the woman the whole time, like it wondered what the hell was wrong with her.

4. a maintenance man came over to install one of those long kitchen lights

he was very leery of my cat, asked if he would still be here when he returned with the correct size light.......I said, well, yes.....he lives here, but that I would secure him out of the way. So the guy comes back and he's on a step ladder in the kitchen - and I THOUGHT I had shut my cat in the bedroom, but he got out and then I heard the guy screaming THE CAT IS ATTACKING ME! I ran into the kitchen and my cat had one paw on a step of the ladder and was looking up inquisitively, like, what is that guy doing. No attack. Serious cat phobia though.

5. Lol!

The young coworker kept screaming about the cat looking at her!

"Eek! It keeps staring at me with those weird cat eyes!"

I was like, "Well, yeah... with you making such a commotion, it's going to pay attention to you!"

15. My cat is a climber and leaper. One of her favorite spots

for looking things over is the top of my kitchen cupboards, just under the ceiling.

There's a woman on the maintenance staff of the apartment complex where I live who is afraid of cats.

So one day when the maintenance woman entered my apartment door, which opens into the kitchen, she looked around and asked where the cat was. I didn't say anything, just looked upward where the cat was perched on the cupboards directly above the woman, checking her out.

The woman looked up, screamed, and started out the door. I told her the cat just wanted to see who had come in. The woman said the cat was perched to attack her, like a wildcat in a tree. Told her it's just a domesticated PET and persuaded her to come back inside.

The cat stayed on the cupboards watching everything. The maintenance woman kept looking over her shoulder to check on the cat. I bit my lip to avoid laughing.

3. if that was real, he should not be a delivery driver

that is one serious phobia indeed; he should probably seek counseling

11. It's a great skit. But if not, I agree. No way he should be delivering.

I never once heard her call her dogs back into the house and there's no delivery van/truck anywhere in the front of the house. There is a bike so I guess we're to assume he delivers on a bile.

13. I am tending towards skit

otherwise, that homeowner is a real asshole - not only does he make no attempt to relieve the driver's stress, he posts it on youtube?

7. I had his job

You meet a lot of dogs. If that's how he reacts to such a small dog, he won't make it to the end of the day. I say the video is a fake.

9. If you want to agitate a dog, act like that.

10. That homeowner is an asshole

So many here so quick to judge the delivery driver. Interesting.

It is not the driver’s responsibility to determine if one’s animal is playing or attacking, even if it’s obvious to all the wise internet observers after the fact. The only dog that has ever bitten me while on the job was a small poodle that the owner assured me is “fine with people.”

If you want to open the door to receive packages, or if you want a service technician to enter your home to perform repairs, manage your animal. If you can’t handle that responsibility, then you shouldn’t own animals.

14. Skit

I'm going with a skit. No truck in sight, no delivery company logo's on his clothes, and the dropped boxes sound (and bounce) like they're empty.

Cute though.

17. Phobias are no joke

It's embarrassing and terrifying. Even though they don't make sense the terror is very real.
So sad for that delivery guy.

I'm emetiphobic. If someone got sick around me I would plug my ears and dive for cover shaking and not come out for a half hour. It has taken me years to get to the point I quickly leave the room and plug my ears. I can clean up after my cat gets sick. I use a lot of paper towels as to not feel it as I pick it up.

If he starts gagging I plug my ears and look away until it's over .

Ridiculing the guy with the phobia is fucking cruel.

18. I worked at a 7-11 decades ago

A woman (let's call her Karen) who'd worked there for years took a serious dislike to me and strove to make things difficult for me. Naturally we worked several two-person shifts together each week.

One night she went missing for an unusual length of time, and I found her in the storeroom. On the floor nearby were two large rats that were having their way with a bag of potato chips.

Karen was utterly petrified. Immobile but shaking, eyes wide, face flushed, shallow breaths and sweat visible on her face. I helped her out of the room and she revealed an intense phobia of rats. That was the last that she or I ever said of it.

We still didn't get along after that, but I was really struck to see such a forceful and domineering personality so paralyzed by fear.


Phobias are indeed a strange and serious phenomenon.
