Recently, Roseilson Melo was about to deliver meals that had been requested from the Brazilian restaurant where he works. Melo wrapped the lunch, placed it in a thermal bag, and then rode his motorcycle to his residence.
After knocking on the customer’s door, however, something inexplicable occurred: the meal instantly vanished.
“The diner could not believe the food was gone,” restaurant owner Tharles Costa told Brazilian media. “The delivery man returned here puzzled and unsure of what to do. We decided to go to the location and request the security camera footage, at which point we witnessed the entire incident.
Evidently, a cunning thief had been on the prowl:
As Melo pulled up to the residence, a strange neighborhood dog also arrived. And when Melo turned his back, the dog observed a bag of food fall from his rucksack.
It gave an opportunity that was evidently irresistible.
Now the meal was hers.
Thankfully, aside from some initial uncertainty, Melo had no animosity towards the stealing dog. In fact, the two subsequently met for a more cordial introduction.
Despite the fact that the dog did not pay for the dinner, she was simply employing dog logic: nice food on the ground is essentially tasty food on the house.
