John worked at a meat factory. One day, after work schedule, he went into the cold room (Freezer) to inspect but in a moment of bad luck, the door closed and was locked inside with no help in sight. Although he screamed and knocked with all his might, his cries went unheard as no one could hear him. Most of the workers had already gone and outside the cold room (freezer), it’s impossible to hear what was going on inside.
Five hours later, whilst John was on the verge of death, the security guard eventually opened the door and saved him. John then asked the security guard what he came to do there as it wasn’t part of his work routine.
He replied: “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 says goodbye every night when leaving. Many treat me as if I am invisible. Today, you greeted me in your simple manner “Hello” at the entrance. But curiously after working hours today, I observed I’ve not heard your “Good bye, see you tomorrow”. I decided to check around the factory.
Not hearing your farewell meant something had happened. Thus, I Sought and found you!”
Morale: Be humble, love and respect those around you because life is too short. Try to have an impact on people in ways we can’t even imagine especially the people that cross our path daily. Stay blessed!
A lady worked at a meat distribution factory. One day, when she finished with her work schedule, she went into the meat 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 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.
Moral Lesson to reflect upon: Be humble, love and respect those around you. Try to have an impact on people who cross your path every day, you never know what tomorrow will bring. Let this story be an inspiration.
