Smile & Thank

Sometimes just a simple smile and a sincere "Thank You" would make the day seems right.  I am sure we pass through toll day in day out and I do met up with some toll attendant who smiles and say "thank you", it just makes me feel at ease even when I am not feel too happy.  But of course you can find the most rude attendant who show you the face that you killed their whole family.
I learn from a friend who says thank you everytime he gets his change from the toll and now I do practice it myself and I feel happy about it.  I think it does not hurt or used too much energy just to say "Thank you".  When I was in Taiwan, the people there are so friendly compared to the ones I see here in my own country.  Be it 7-Eleven or big shopping malls the staff always serves you with a smile and always greet "Welcome" when you enter and "Thank you" when you leave whether you buy anything or not.  I do know for a fact that Malaysians sales tend to have those kind of look at you when you enter a store, they look at you from head to toe and start judging whether you have the money to buy or not, that is what I hate most.
But yesterday when I was shopping at Tiffany & Co. the staff there were marvelous.  I just dress as casual as usual and walk in to help my friend to get a birthday present.  Of course my friend gave me bunch of image to see and check out the price.  And I showed all the image and the Sales Rep. actually took all the items for me to choose no question ask.  Even I said I will come back after my lunch and the Sales actually waited for me to come back with a smile.  This is what I call service and I guess only big companies are able to give such services compare to those "wanna be" stores.

A friendly gesture certainly goes a long way to make us feel good. Conversedly , a lousy encounter spoils our mood too. So happened that yesterday, a samseng cut queue at the petrol station. I told him not to do so, but decided aginst provoking him coz these peeps does not know the law, but break them. Luckily i didn't too, coz he wuz looking for a reason to start a fight, gave me a verbal warning not to offend an "indian" like him.
It spoilt my morning.

Sometimes it is totally not worth arguing with those uneducated people who knows nothing but to pick a fight.
But sometimes it is even worst when those educated people act like some caveman...
