Discovering a new language..

Last night, I was thinking how amazing is to discover a language. I believe this is one of the most important reasons I like English. I love discovering English. Every new word, every new meaning, new idea, new concept is like a world itself. It open my mind widely and make me see new and more views.

The same happens with Spanish. Although I am an Spanish native speaker, I love discovering my own language too. The spanish literature, the poetry, the combination of words, the methaphoras.... Spanish as a language has such a rich vocabulary that it will never stop to atonish us. Discovering every new word and meaning is a wonderful gift.

Having said all that, I think that the most wonderful fact of everything is the act of Discovering.

Have you ever been in Customer Service? Read this...

"I'm the man who goes to a restaurant, seats patiently on his table while a maître does everything but my request.

I'm the man who goes into a store and waits patiently, in silence, while the salesman finishes their private conversations.

I'm the man that goes in a gas station and never blows your horn, but waits patiently while the worker finishes the reading of his newspaper.

I'm the man that when comes into a store, looks like if I was just asking a favor. Waiting for a smile or just waiting to be noticed.

I'm the man whose comes into a bank and waits calmly that the workers finish their talks with their work partners... and I wait.

I'm the man that explains desperate the urgency of some car piece, but without complain, waiting patiently while the workers had their talk between them selves or they just pretend that you're not there, looking for the other side.

You might be thinking that I'm the calm, patiently person and that never wants to cause any problem.

You're mistake.

Do you know who am I?

I'm the client that will never come back again!

I enjoy myself seeing millions to be expended in publicity, just to bring me back to their stores.While when I was there for first time, all what I had need was a simply smile. Just needed someone to be gentle. So cheap. Just to give me some more Courtesy!"

Tip for Better Life Nº7: Love & Dependency

"If being loved is your goal, you will fail to achieve it. The only way to be assured of being loved is to be a person worthy of love, and you cannot be a person worthy of love when your primary goal in life is to passively be loved"
