Thanksgiving: Events/ Days don’t have bad intentions…

This is the Thanksgiving week here in the US. For last four years, I have seen people complaining about consumerism during this holiday season. Some even talk about how people have a lot to eat and waste, while thousands of people starve on the Thanksgiving day. Days or events do not have bad intentions, but what we do on that day, makes it good or bad.

I’m not a Black Friday shopper, but appreciate good gatherings and food with “family of friends” ┬áhere at MSU. Thanksgiving day is more than shopping or eating or spending time with your loved ones. Thanksgiving is also about showing empathy, love and care for those who provide us general services. I’m morally and socially indebted by the services provided to me by postal staff, university staff, cashiers at malls and grocery stores, and many more. Just left a ‘Thank You’ note for the postmaster. Who are you thankful to beside your family and friends? Think and tell those people that you’re thankful for their presence and services.



Human ATM Machine

Have you ever seen a human ATM machine?

I have.

Human ATM machine is a machine that accepts emotional debit card to withdraw money. Credit would have been better because then the person who takes out money, would then have to return the money. But that is not the case. People (most of the time your own family) use emotional debit card over and over again without realizing that its a machine, it can run out of money or can be out of order. But if that is the case, they won’t stop by to fix you. They will not come again till somebody else fixes you and to use the card again.

You know how it feels, being an ATM machine?

I know!

It hurts!!!
