THOUGHTS 4531 TO 4535

MY THOUGHTS 4531
CHOICES: IF YOU MINDFULLY MOVE FORWARD IN YOUR LIFE WITH PREFERENCES, NOT EXPECTATIONS, THEIR WILL BE NO DISAPPOINTMENTS; OR AT LEAST, MINIMAL DISAPPOINTMENTS. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4532
CHOICES: IF YOU ARE REJECTED BY YOUR EXTERNAL WORLD AS AN ACCEPTABLE COMPADRE, IT IS THEIR LOSS; NOT YOURS. CONTINUE ON YOUR PATH AND BE SELF-FULLED. THE BUDDHA, JESUS, SAI BABA, MOTHER TERESA, AND THE DALAI LAMA HAVE ALL BECOME SELF-FULLED THROUGH THEIR BIRTH FAITHS. THEY ARE YOUR EXAMPLES ON HOW TO TRULY LIVE ONE’S PATH SPIRITUALLY.

MY THOUGHTS 4533
TIPPING: IN SOME CULTURES, WHEN YOU TIP, IT IS CONSIDERED AN INSULT AND AN INDICATION THAT YOU WERE NOT SATISFIED WITH THE SERVICES RENDERED. IN SOME CULTURES, TIPPING IS EXPECTED AS A SUPPLEMENTAL SUPPORT TO THE SERVICE PERSONNEL’S INCOME. HOWEVER, YOU SHOULD NEVER BE AN OBLIGATION ON HOW MUCH TO TIP OR WHETHER TO TIP AT ALL. TIPPING SHOULD COME FROM ONE’S FEELINGS OF GRATITUDE FOR THE GOOD SERVICE RENDERED BY THE SERVICE PERSONNEL. BAD OR MEDIOCRE SERVICES DO NOT DESERVE TIPS. SOME SOCIETIES TO HAVE A STANDARD DEPENDING ON THE SERVICES RENDERED. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4534
PARABLES: WHEN MILAN HAD ONLY THREE DOLLARS LEFT TO HIS NAME, HE WENT TO A RESTAURANT AND ORDERED A SANDWICH AND A COFFEE, WHICH CAME TO $2.75. ALL HE HAD LEFT IN THE WORLD FOR THE NEXT FIVE DAYS WAS THE 25 CENTS AFTER THE BILL WAS PAID. HE PUT THE 25 CENTS ON THE TABLE AS A TIP. WHEN HE LEFT, THE WAITRESS RAN AFTER HIM AND THREW THE TIP AT HIM WITH UNKIND WORDS. SHE WAS ANGRY THAT IT WAS NOT ENOUGH. SHE DID NOT REALIZE THAT IT WAS ALL THE MONEY HE LEFT IN THE WORLD FOR THE NEXT FIVE DAYS. HER ARROGANCE TAUGHT HIM AN IMPORTANT LESSON ABOUT TIPPING. WHEN HE STARTED WORKING AGAIN, HE DECIDED TO MAKE HIS OWN TIPPING POLICY. IF THE SERVICE WAS EXCEPTIONAL HE LEFT A 20% TIP. IF THE SERVICE WAS JUST OKAY HE LEFT A 10 – 15% TIP. IF THE SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE HE LEFT ONE PENNY AS A TIP. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4535
TIPPING: WHEN ONE GOES OUT TO DINE, ONE GOES OUT FOR THE AMBIENCE AND THE SERVICE ONE RECEIVES. YOU SHOULD NOT TOLERATE BAD SERVICE BECAUSE SOME SERVICE PERSON HAD TROUBLE AT HOME OR IS ANGRY AT SOMEONE ELSE. NEITHER BAD SERVICE NOR RUDE SERVICE SHOULD EVER BE REWARDED. EmilKoval©2013
