My friends(Especially older guys and seniors) tell me that I have a bad quality. I always want to pay or go Dutch. I have had some fantastic arguments and made some really close friends because of this habit.. Coming to the point… I was recently telling a friend of mine who is also my physiotherapist (remember my thumb) – I have not seen the movie “Half Ticket.” He is a big movie buff. I don’t remember what he said to this, we were actually talking about someone else at that time and went back to out topic of contention. I happened to mention it to him that it is not available in most stores now and I have searched it pretty much everywhere, even piratebay. He said that he has contacts and we went back to our very interesting topic.
Few minutes after hanging up, He called again “I found the movie.”
I was shocked. He said that he will bring it along. I was very pleased. Slightly annoyed at the aspect that I will have to argue about the payments again. At this point you should know that he has still not accepted the payment for the bandage or let alone his services. We still argue about it and I keep telling him that my hand is not completely cured because he hasn’t accepted the payment.
By today morning, I completely forgot about the CD. We were very busy with individual work, so we briefly met for a minute, I was about to tell him goodbye and he said “Wait, I have half Ticket” and he got it for me. His face was glowing when he handed me the CD. There was something special about the light in his eyes. He was soooo happy to give it to me. Happier than I was to receive it, I guess. In all this, I forgot to argue about payment or the CD. I just accepted, smiled, and … went my way out.
Learned one thing, Some people truly give from their heart. They are really so happy to give something to you that every part of their being expresses happiness and love. The gift is filled with so much love that all silly ideas like giving money or saying a verbal thank you seems so useless.
I am very very thankful for such people in my Life. Thank YOU.
