Those Born To Serve With A Smile

The way we look at jobs and careers in this country is completely different to many others.  I’m thinking here of many south asian nations where any job is considered a benefit and something to be taken very seriously.  Many carers and service providers are from Sri Lanka, Phillippines etc. and from my experience, these folk seem born to provide hands on service and care.   Two  ancient relatives live in care homes and without exception, the carers from the east are so much kinder, patient and loving than colleagues from here.   This was also very apparent when on a cruise recently – our table had two truly outstanding waiting staff.  The main waiter had served 17 years with the same cruising company and his junior companian had served 5.  They were so happy and earnest in their endeavours to ensure we had the best possible service they could offer.  They couldn’t do enough for us.  The water was constantly being refilled, extra bread rolls or napkins provided without needing to be asked.   We tipped them both generously – you don’t mind when the service is beyond the call of duty……
