STORIES AND LESSONS

LESSONS ABOUT THE WAY WE TREAT PEOPLE

CLEANING LADY

During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz.
I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions
until I read the last one:
"What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"
Surely this was some kind of joke, I had seen the cleaning woman
several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would
I know her name?

I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before
class ended, one student asked if the last question would count
toward our quiz grade.

"Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers, you will meet
many people. All are significant. they deserve your attention and
care, even if all you do is smile and say "hello."

I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was DOROTHY.

PICK UP IN THE RAIN

One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rain storm.

Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car.

A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of those conflict-filled 1960's. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her into a taxicab.

She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his address and thanked him. Seven days went by and knock came on the man's door. To his surprise a giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A special note was attached.

It read: "Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes, but also my spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband's bedside just before he passed away...
God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others."

Sincerely,
Mrs. Nat King Cole
