The people in our peripheral vision - did you say thanks to them?
We know and notice many people in our peripheral vision who help us in one way or the other in our day to day life. But do we acknowledge their efforts? Have we ever thought of thanking them (not just as a formality) for what they do? Join this discussion and share your thoughts. Let us acknowledge the services of such souls through this thread.
We interact with a lot of people in our daily life, primarily our family members, our friends, our workplace colleagues, our neighbours, etc. When we receive some help from them, we invariable give them thanks.
What about the people who do the little things and whom we take for granted, who are sort of in our peripheral vision, just there, but unacknowledged directly. For example: a retail store salesman who will come out from behind the counter to offer you a chair; the staff in a restaurant who fetches an extra chair to keep your bags so that you will be comfortable; the office peon who brings your daily cup of tea; the young lady who helps you find the product you are searching for in the supermarket; the doorman who helps you up the steps and holds the door open for you outside the garments showroom....there are so many such people. Do you thank them?
It may be part of their job, but they are doing it responsibly and well. Acknowledge them directly with eye contact & a thanks each time you get their service, not just consider them as part of the general surroundings, only in your peripheral vision.
