I saw this sticker on facebook and commented “I have never allowed myself to feel special and not bothered to check whether I am unwanted “. That was a month ago.
Now, I think its worth a discussion, since everybody goes through this situation and others will have to, some time in future. Its just a matter of time. It is as certain as death
Very early in my life I realized not to fall for the special treatment. I did not have any personal experience, I saw it happening all around me and I learnt.
You can see this in every walk of life. The treatment is not for YOU.
You walk into a bank and tell them you want to start an account and deposit some money. The manager along with the entire staff will hover around you carrying you off your feet. Here, let us fill the form for you, you need just sign here , here and here. Thank you, I will fill them. No Sir, you are special. Coffee, tea or something cold ?
The elections are round the corner. It is time to visit the huts, hug the grannies and pull the cheeks of the month old babies, have tea with them, at least pretend a sip. I am your servant, shall take care of all your problems -water, house, road, rice, brinjals, just vote for me.
Its appraisal time, treat the boss time, leave it to me , Sir, you relax, this is a gift for you, got it from Singapore, I felt you are the one who deserves it.
The official, whose signature has power to sanction, remove obstacles or holds an important title is a VIP and made to feel like one.
When the title gets prefixed with an ex- or retired, the mask falls off and the reality dawns.
Meanwhile there are people who basks in the glory of being a relative of a VIP and misuses the position as long as the uncle is in power and then a day comes when the power fails. What a fall…
How much the person gives me or his potential to give is what influences my admiration, respect and behavior towards someone, neither the giver nor the receiver realizes this. They all get carried away by the moment.
Don’t get carried away, think why , is it me or my position because the dump, later can be very hurtful.
I remember an Ad where Yuvaraj Singh says as long as your bat talks, you are there. It shows it’s the cricketer and not Yuvi that is special. I forget the product, get the message.
The other day, I visited my Aunt, a renowned professor, whose house is located in a very envious location in town and asked her you must be having lots of visitors stopping by ? As a matter of fact she replied causally, oh ya, lots of them…not these days,not after my retirement.
A guy orders for tea and pays a large tip on his way out. The next time when he comes with his friend for lunch to the restaurant, he gets a huge welcome and the waiters vied with each other to serve him. After the lunch he drops a coin as tip to the shock of the waiters. Sir , last time…
Yes, last time I tipped for this time and this time it is for last time.
