IT MAY BE YOU…BE NICE!

he person you are treating badly today may be your destiny helper tomorrow. It is good to be nice. People are fighting battles you have no idea about. Be cautious. You are never too important to be nice to people. It's nice to be important but it is more important to be nice.

A lady worked at a meat distribution factory. One day, when she finished with her work schedule, she went into the cold room (Freezer) to inspect something, but in a moment of misfortune, the door closed and she was locked inside with no help in sight.

Although she screamed and knocked with all her might, her cries went unheard as no one could hear her. Most of the workers had already gone, and outside the cold room it's impossible to hear what was going on inside.

Five hours later, whilst she was at the verge of death, the security guard of the factory eventually opened the door.

She was miraculously saved from dying that day.

When she later asked the security guard how he had come to open the door, which wasn't his usual work routine.

His explanation: "I've been working in this factory for 35 years, hundreds of workers come in and out every day, but you're one of the few who greet me in the morning and say goodbye to me every night when leaving after work. Many treat me as if I'm invisible.

Today, as you reported for work, like all other days, you greeted me in your simple manner 'Hello'. But this evening after working hours, I curiously observed that I had not heard your "Bye, see you tomorrow".

Hence, I decided to check around the factory. I look forward to your 'hi' and 'bye' every day because they remind me that I am someone.

By not hearing your farewell today, I knew something had happened. That's why I was searching everywhere for you."

Humility is priceless and it is inexpensive. Two things define a man: your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you think you have arrived. The person you look down on today may turn out to be a life saver for you tomorrow. Be kind. Pride can put a lead over your life. Be humble, love and respect those around you. The way you make others feel about themselves says a lot about you. In a world where you can be anything, be nice. Try to have an impact on people who cross your path every day, you never know what tomorrow will bring.
