    Five lessons on how to treat people

    Pretty good lessons...

    1. First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady.

    During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz.
    I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions,
    until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans
    the school?"

    Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman
    Several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I
    know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank.
    Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would
    count toward our quiz grade..

    "Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers, you will meet
    many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care,
    even if all you do is smile and say "hello".

    I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was
    Dorothy.

    2. Second Important Lesson - Pickup in the Rain

    One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American woman was
    standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing
    rainstorm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking
    wet, she decided to flag down the next car.

    A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of in those
    conflict filled 1960s. The man took her to safety, helped her get
    assistance and put her into a taxicab.

    She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his address and
    Thanked him. Seven days went by and a knock came on the man's door. To his
    surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A
    special note was attached. It read: "Thank you so much for assisting me on
    the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes, but
    also my spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make
    it to my dying husband's bedside just before he passed away.. God bless
    you for helping me and unselfishly serving others," Sincerely, Mrs. Nat
    King Cole.

    3. Third Important Lesson - Always remember those who serve.

    In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old
    Boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a
    glass of water in front of him. "How much is an ice cream sundae?" he
    asked. "Fifty cents," replied the waitress.

    The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied the
    coins in it.

    Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he i nquired. By now
    More people were waiting for a table and the waitress was growing
    impatient. "Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied.
    The little boy again counted his coins. "I'll have the plain ice
    cream," he said. The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the
    table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier
    and left.

    When the waitress came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the
    table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were two nickels
    and five pennies. You see, he couldn't have the sundae, because he had
    to have enough left to leave her a tip.

    4. Fourth Important Lesson - The Obstacles in Our Path.

    In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he
    hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock.
    Some of the king's wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply
    walked around it. Many loudly blamed the King for not keeping the roads
    clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way.

    Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. Upon
    Approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried
    to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and
    straining, he finally succeeded. After the peasant picked up his
    load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder
    had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the King
    indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder
    from the roadway. The peasant learned what many of us never understand!

    Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.

    5. Fifth Important Lesson - Giving When it Counts.

    Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a hospital, I got to
    know a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare &serious
    disease. Her only chance of reco very appeared to be a blood
    transfusion from her 5-year-old brother, who had miraculously survived the same
    disease and had developed the antibodies needed to combat the
    illness. The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked
    the little boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I
    saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and
    saying, "Yes I'll do it if it will save her." As the transfusion progressed,
    he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the
    color returning to her cheeks. Then his face grew pale and his smile
    faded. He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice,
    "Will I start to die right away?".

    Being so young, the little boy had misunderstood the doctor; he
    thought he was going to have to give his sister all of his blood in order to
    save her.
