I am a strong believer that there are indeed some little things we can do to make other happy, for instance, a smile, a thoughtful gesture, an understanding heart and sometimes a little tipping here and there can just brighten up someone's days.
And I would like to share this with you guys,hopefully you can do likewise some points in our trips to the banks...............
I was at a bank to deposit a check,(hear me just a check),there were two check deposit machines and both were occupied as well and I was the second in queue at one of them. The two persons in these two check deposit machines were having stack of checks respectively.
Mind you, if you have experience in depositing checks through machines,you would know that it will never be a 'smooth ride" there tend to be some glitches here and there,worse still,if you are the back of someone who is depositing many checks,you will be overwhelmed with frustration.
So there I was at the back of someone who happened to have stacks of check to be deposited and some checks of hers kept coming out from the slot, a few went in and a few more were in her hands and the glitches happened and that slowed her down..
So I was at the back of her, I knew she would take a little while to finish her errand, I looked over to another machine, still the same guy depositing stack of checks, same glitches(checks could not feed into slot,kept coming out as well) So I knew it would futile to switch lane.
The little while then seemed unbearable,so gingerly and politely I asked the girl in front of me can she let me deposit my One and ONLY check first, she turned over her shoulder and looked at me briefly and said in Hokkien," you can wait or not ?" rudely she said that. I felt terrible.
So the unkind comment caught the attention of the guy at the next machine,he looked at my face that was almost cringed with "paisei ness" and with some 'ting ting" sound and said to me,"you can deposit your check here first"
Seriously, I was not angry with the lady, may be she was frustrated too,(because of the glitches) but at the same time I was thankful to that Guy who just cheered me up with the little thing that he did.Period.
P/S : It is not that hard to make others happy
