Late Night in the Company Cab
--by Smitha, posted Nov 17, 2008
I was then working in a BPO in the evening shift. It was a tough day for me and was I waiting to go home and sleep. The time was 10pm. I got into my company cab and was glad to see that I was the only person in it, so that I could reach home in the next 30 minutes.
Just then another girl got into the company cab. She told the driver where she wanted to go and it was in the opposite direction to where I was headed. The driver decided to drop me home first as he felt my place was closer to the office and I was happy. When the company vehicle moved out of my office campus, the other girl got a call on her mobile.
From the conversation, I figured out that her husband was not keeping well. She was trying to tell him to eat some light food. I didn't know what was actually wrong with him, but she was very worried. She asked him to wait until she came home, so that they could go to the doctor together.
As soon as I heard that, I asked the driver to stop the cab, take a u-turn and drop her home first. Though she was tensed and worried, she didn't forget to smile at me and thank me. She said that her husband was having a high fever. I reached home at 11:30pm. When I slept on my bed after praying for her husband, I felt like an angel kissed me on my forehead.
Well done. A little thing can make a difference to others.
