The experience I am going to tell you about happened during the summer vacation two years ago before the outbreak of coronavirus. Back then, I volunteered at the inquiry desk in the train station, offering necessary help and answering passengers’ questions about the timetable, the bus routes, and the taxi picking-up point.
It was an afternoon, and I had been working for four hours without a break, thirsty, exhausted, and hungry. Then there came a fancy-looking, middle-aged woman. She was wearing a stylish dress, this article is from Laokaoya website, carrying a handbag of Hermes, and dragging a silver suitcase, and a huge sunglass covered half of her face. All these items indicated how wealthy she was and how much she did not want to be disturbed.
She approached the desk and asked where she could take the taxi, just like other passengers I had answered for hundreds of times. But what annoyed me was her attitude. She did not say hello, did not took off her sunglass, and even did not pose her face in my direction. Her posture and tone made me feel like I was her servant, who did not deserve her respect and politeness.
I wanted to ignore her and pretended that I did not catch her words. But my sense of duty prevented me from doing so. After complaining in my mind for several seconds, I put on my professional smile, try my best to disguise my discontent, and gave her explicit instruction about how to get to the taxi picking-up point. How friendly I was!
