Handle with care!

My mom always says that u never know when & how another person might be of help to u & hence you shd deal each person u meet with extra care & minimal damage! I was reminded of the same when these two incidents happened recently.

I was looking around for a good car to buy & came across this car dealer. I liked the car but for various reasons was taking my time to decide on the same. Finally when I thot of buying the same, unfortunately I had a tiff with the car dealer & the deal was called off.

Now, I have been trying to sell my car & I was referred to the same dealer! I quite forgot abt the incident of (thinking of) buying from him but he seems to be rememebering me v.well! Needless to say he wasnt interested in buying my car! Shucks!

This other incident thankfully I wasnt in the receiving end!!!

There is a middle aged lady here whose husband is a reputed business person & quite well known. I had to deal with her a while ago as I was hosting a fund raising show & she was gonna sing. Hence I had called her to get some info & she was kinda rude to me & took quite some time to give me the reqd info. I was pissed off with her & thot I shd even mess up the announcement b4 her song!! Anycase I wanted to be a good MC & hence didnt resort to any such means.

Two months later, this lady has joined my office as a trainee assistant & works under me! Now she plays her cards well enuff!!

Anycase. I think it is better to handle each person with care! :)

    Yes h2bme after all, we live in a society and we cannot have a " I don`t care a damn" attitude, because if everyone thought thus the very fabric of society would be torn apart.

    Nice post..!

    Have Fun, Take Care and God Bless!

    With Best Regards,
    Srijith.

Jus imagine how embarrasing it wud have been to the two of them! :D

    Well said and right said. We never know when you end up meeting the same person and world is so small. So the chances are definitely high.

    When Amma says, "Fire, don't touch", we still try to confirm it for ourselves by touching, getting burnt and then learn the lesson!!

    Mom is always rite :-)
    Read somewhere "Be nice to people on ur way up as U may have to encounter them on your way down." Its a hard act to follow in real life tho :-)

    I totally agree with you... you never know in what way a person might help you out from some scrape. And then...why misbehave with someone without any reason when any work can be more easily done by being polite.

    good food for thought!!!!

    Have missed your posts! Glad to see you back.

    I totally agree with the notion of handling people with care because it really is a small world out there.

    In your first example, I still don't get why the dealer would bite off his nose so to speak instead of being able to make money off of you by buying your car and then re-selling it? In the second example, I bet that lady relives her ill spoken words evey time she sees you in the office. Whenever someone ticks me off I try and practice the Bible vs, "Vengence is my said the Lord," God has a pretty good sense of humor in my opinion, and I love seeing how he gets back at someone for me. It is usually much better than what I could have thought of as in this case.

    Leave it to the moms to dispense the right advice:)I truly believe what goes around comes around,you never know when you will come across the person again,I always try to remember that when I deal with people.

     
  • At 8:40 PM, Blogger Shuba said…

  • At 6:42 AM, Blogger Pavithra said…

  • At 11:10 AM, Blogger Kalpana said…

    Very true. We need to learn to deal with our emotions.

    quite True,Do unto others as you would have others do unto you, because they eventually will come full circle ,catching up with your karma,If one believes in karma.I would say we reap what we sow:)
