This question goes to me..and to you! Yes you!
Have you ever greeted any refuse collector? Or thought of doing so? Have you told them good day? How are you?
Frankly, I haven’t either.
I was watching TV one evening and there was a show about refuse or some sort of dumping ground somewhere in Morocco.
Suddenly it clicked to me “why do I disregard collectors?” – “why look down on them?” So i thought I needed to recognize them in a blog post at least. Then of course cultivate the habit of actually greeting them..and acknowledge their presence.
They are humans, just like me and you. Their only crime is that they collect our refuse! That’s THEIR job .. just like you’re an MD, radio presenter, web developer, or financial accountant.
If you believe you’re doing the most important job in the world..then you should look back at them and you’ll notice they’re doing a better job..They’re getting rid of our refuse.. our dirt..!
They’re making life easy for me and you! They’re making us drive or walk around the streets and our homes and feeling clean!
This blog is not only about refuse collectors but also janitors, those who collect your WASTE (you know what I mean).
The mere fact that they’ve decided to do this job (which you and I definitely wouldn’t), should make us at least regard them in society.
They are people who are forced by circumstances, if they had better options they wouldn’t have done that! At least they aren’t begging on the streets.
So this is a cause to me and you! Let’s appreciate whats around us!
Just say a nice “hello” with a smile! Let’s appreciate what others are doing so others appreciate what we also do!
