A lady worked at a meat distribution factory.
One day, when she finished with her work schedule, She went in to the meat cold room (freeze) 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, while she was at the verge of death, the security guard of the factory eventually open 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 meat distribution 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 good bye to me every night when leaving after work, many treat me as 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 forwarded 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 of the Story:
Be humble, love and respect those around you. As 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 every day. Someone seemingly so insignificant and irrelevant today could be the only help you can get tomorrow.
