Nobody is useless

Postby iamdahmmy » 05 Apr 2019, 17:01

This new guy was freshly recruited in my company. He was trying to be friendly but I always gave him a cold shoulder.I put that to the fact that I was too full of myself..I was an egotist..."He is new,I'm his boss..why should I interact with him"that was my thought.I was always walking with my nose in the air

Then one day, we both took a taxi cab from our place of work.My wallet fell into the taxi cab..Now,let me say this..my wallet is my life.It contains almost all my documents.. I got down of the cab and didn't notice my wallet had dropped. I was walking home when my phone rang.It was my colleague. He said he saw my wallet in the cab when he wanted to alight. He had to take a bike down to where I was and handed me the wallet.I was gobsmacked.What I dreaded most had happened..losing my wallet..Had it mean he didn't see the wallet,I would have lost it.

I learnt a great lesson that day..Nobody is useless..Be nice to everyone. A man that pushes your button today can save your life tomorrow..Never discount someone"s good qualities just because they made a mistake. So guys,what was that thing that someone you didn't think highly of did to save you?

Yes, that was a big lesson. But you recognise that, so it is even bigger :)
I'm glad that you shared that story. Unfortunately people are treated by their "importance" in work. And for some people, only those who can give them something, have some value (and lose the value when they have what they want)...
Everyone is important for someone and everyone has it's own value!

Yes, we should not ignore everyone around us although he/she is more fresh or lower grade than us.

This is a truly great lesson. We should learn to treat everyone equally because all of us are humans and the positions we hold in life doesn't have to make us narcissists.

You are definitely right.their is this mantra in my neck of the woods.. I don't know wether its a popular saying in other countries too "On your way up, help those that you meet for you might meet them on your way down"..

Yes often we misunderstand or underestimate other people, and judge people too early but that should not be done. It is good that you shared this story.

I think on some areas and yes I think it is true, however, I know someone who is very useless and I wonder what happen to his brain , he is not using it. I am not being bully to someone, it is just my observation and no one knows this person. Sometimes being useless is something about not being a someone that can help you in times of your need and you are always there for that person.

I am very happy that the person whom you have thought of as useless have convinced you he is not. In fact, nobody is. The best thing you can do from now on is follow the saying, pay it forward. The kindness you have received that day, you should as well give it to another, not necessarily limited to that person only. You will never know that perhaps one day you have become a light to someone who had been in there dark days. That perhaps you have become a reason one believes there is hope in this troubled world we are living... <3 <3 <3

I'm glad your experience humbled you :) This is something I live by because I truly believe everyone matters. I strongly believe we should all respect each other and treat others how we'd have them treat us. Everywhere I go, I try to make time for people that's why those who know me will tell you I'm a people's person. This is how I was raised and as sickly as it may sound to some, I think it's one of the greatest gifts my parents could have ever given me.

I agree..we should treat everyone with decorum..Nobody wants to be treated in a shoddy way...
