A BAD HABIT

A BAD HABBIT WHICH SOME OF US OR OUR CHILDREN MAY HAVE...

THE BELOW LEARNING THAT TOO ON DEEPAWALI IS A BEST TIME TO CHANGE.. SO TRY TO CHANGE IT...


Germany is a highly industrialized country.
In such a country, many will think its people lead a luxurious life.

When I arrived at Hamburg , my colleagues walked into the restaurant, we noticed that a lot of tables were empty. There was a table where a young
couple was having their meal. There were only two dishes and two cans of beer on the table. I wondered if such simple meal could be romantic, and whether the girl will leave this stingy guy.

There were a few old ladies on another table. When a dish is served, the waiter would distribute the food for them, and they would finish every bit of the food on their plates.

As we were hungry, our local colleague ordered more food for us.When we left, there was still about one third of un-consumed food on the table.

When we were leaving the restaurant, the old ladies spoke to us in English, we understood
that they were unhappy about us wasting so much food.

"We paid for our food, it is none of your business how much food we left
behind," my colleague told the old ladies.
The old ladies were furious. One of them immediately took her hand phone out
and made a call to someone. After a while, a man in uniform from Social Security organisation arrived. Upon knowing  what
the dispute was, he issued us a 50 Euro fine. We all kept quiet.

The officer told us in a stern voice, "ORDER WHAT YOU CAN CONSUME, MONEY IS YOURS BUT RESOURCES BELONG TO THE SOCIETY. THERE ARE MANY OTHERS IN THE WORLD WHO ARE FACING SHORTAGE OF RESOURCES. YOU HAVE  NO REASON TO WASTE RESOURCES."

The mindset of people of this rich country put all of us to shame. WE REALLY NEED TO REFLECT ON THIS.

We are from country which is not very rich in resources.
To save face, we order large quantity and also waste food when we give others a treat.

THIS LESSON TAUGHT US A LESSON TO THINK SERIOUSLY ABOUT
CHANGING OUR BAD HABITS.

"MONEY IS YOURS BUT RESOURCES BELONG TO THE SOCIETY."
