Today’s topic is totally unrelated with fashion or travel. It’s just me wanting to put my thoughts on the incident which I can never get rid from my head into words.
So let’s wind back to the Saturday, 25th March 2017. After attending a charity dinner with my dad and sis, we decided to pull over our car and grab some light supper as we hardly ate during the dinner.
In the middle of our meal, an Indian man (approximately 40 years old) approached us and asked for money. Usually we won’t straight away give them money. Instead, we give them food or stuff they need. As we do not want to give them the perception of getting easy money just by begging. Besides, sometimes they ask you for money not because of meal but for the sake of cigarette or even worse, drugs (You might not agree with me as different people have different perspective)!
Always treat people the way you wanted to be treated.
And the worse thing the lady boss did is she gave him the food so reluctantly! This really pissed me off, and all she gave was just rice and soup (and it costs us RM5, with that value of money, we should have just brought him some better food). Besides, I remembered when he asked for a plastic bag, she yelled at him AGAIN, saying he was annoying! Tsk, tsk what the hell is this shit?! We have already said we will pay for him, so treat him like he is your customer not a beggar! Even a beggar does not deserve this kind of treatment. If I were you, I would have just offer him the food, yes even everyday doesn’t costs you a hella dollar!
