The other day I sent some ‘Thank You’ cards to few people, where I was impressed with there services. Though we all know that if you pay you get good service or you are supposedly to get a good service. However, now a days thing are so rare and uncertain that when people do show some justice and truthfulness towards there duties I feel like recognizing them and bringing it to there attention that they are doing a great job!
“I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.” ~William Shakespeare
I had posted the cards and all of them were within California. The card’s address was as usual place where we write however the sent address I wrote at the bottom of the card on the right hand side, instead of left hand side top side of the card. Guess what, the card that I sent to someone else came back to me … lol!
I was so zapped at this that are people so illiterate?, that they can’t even read properly as I had clearly written my address as ‘From’! I think anyone can or should make out that…and when I discussed this with some friends they said – oh, that’s coz you didn’t write the from address on the left side top of the card !!!!! Gosh! Now don’t tell me that’s the reason!!??!!

It reminded me another incident which took place in India …not that am comparing but its very obvious when I say about the postal services of two country where expectation from US side is more :D! I had sent a letter within the city and I was not sure of the zip code/pin code and guess what instead of the letter coming back it was posted to the right address with a corrected zip code/pin code! This I came to know when I personally met that friend of mine!!!

So its nothing to do with countries but people! A clear ignorance is the result what happened to the card that I sent to someone, got delivered to myself!
I always feel, if you are not happy with your job …go change it! Instead of causing problems to others and giving a bad image to the entire organization!
“The first duty of a human being is to assume the right functional relationship to society — more briefly, to find your real job, and do it” ~ Charlotte Perkins Gilman
If you have taken an oath as an employee of any organization, one should not let impact the service that they are providing to so many people in the country.
This time I had to send this card again with all the changes that US post officials are used to, about the address 😀
A unique experience which if I share with my Indian friends they will say – “what? Its US how come such things happen there…:D and we look so stupid even to give any reasons to them 😀
“How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a weary world.”
But anyway I have a reason to celebrate as a new born baby completes his 28th day 😉 today!
“Think of the magic of that foot, comparatively small, upon which your whole weight rests. It’s a miracle, and the dance…is a celebration of that miracle.” ~ Martha Washington
