I was doing my early morning shopping today. I like going to the grocery store before work, I buy the things I need to have in my office in the way of healthy snacks and even lunch, any way that’s another issue for another time.
I pick up some fruit and take it to be weighed, so I say good morning to the employee who is doing the weighing, and he was surprised that I said any thing to him, later on at the cash register I'm unloading my things and I say again good morning to the cashier, he as well gave me this shocked look ! the sad part is that a lot of people treat these people as though they don't exist.
When was the last time, you looked the valet in the eye and said thanks as you tipped them, when was it that you looked the waiter at the restaurant in the eye while making your order or when they place the food in front of you, instead of saying thanks while looking at the food or your company. Don't forget the door man, security people, the newspapers sales man at the traffic light.
I'm sure that most of us, most of the time, do look them in the eye and treat them like a fellow human, but this is kind of a reminder so we don't forget.
All for now …
