After leaving the shop, I went to the chat place, where I am a regular, to eat pani puri. I reached, parked my bike, and noticed there were no customers. The man who usually serves me was busy on a phone call. He asked his other staff to serve me.
I told the guy I needed mixed pani (spicy and sweet). First, he served sweet pani, and then the spicy one. I politely told him I wanted mixed pani, but he didn’t seem to understand. I asked him if he was serving for the first time. When he answered in the affirmative, I guided him with gestures and politely explained what I wanted. Despite not being fully satisfied, I smiled and ate mindfully. After I was done eating, I told him – “Good job; thank you for serving.” He had a big smile on his face!
Make new people feel comfortable, find reasons to be kind.
