We all have days like that...
This morning my rickshaw driver had no change he had to give me back 20 on 50 rupees. He forced me to ask some watchman. Who didn’t have the change.
Then he wanted to force me to go and ask the cigarettes walla. I told him “No. YOU go.” (firstly I am shy and secondly it is his fault if he doesn’t have the change – which is actually debatable but not when they have attitude like this one!).
So he refused to go. And with such an air... I would have slapped him...
So I went up to the office and started working. It took him about fifteen minutes to realise that I was not going to back down! Whereupon he sent to watchman up to seek his due!
A few hours later, I was discussing the “development” of one of my guys. Here is the conclusion of the session:
- Me: So we put that you are going to read a book about a great leader. Do you have any name in mind?
- Him: Yes! Hitler.
- Me (distracted): Ok, ok.
- Me: Give me the title, I'll put it in your sheet.
- Him: Hitler
- Me: Whaaaaaat??
- Him: Yeah he was a great leader!
- Me: True. But he also got millions of people killed... Okay, Let's put that you're going to read a book about a great business leader ok?
