We should all be about service
There was a story recently published in the local newspapers about the service at the Ministry of National Security, Passports Division, where mention was made about the very prompt and cordial service received at this institution.
I confirm that the service has tremendously improved but may still need some tweaking. More importantly, I am satisfied tremendously that we are, I believe as Trinidad and Tobago citizens, now on the way to providing a product that we can offer for sale to would-be tourists entering our land of the hummingbird and Carnival. That product is “service”.
Service should be from top-down. Service should be taught at home, schools and whereever, so that it would be automatic for little children and adults to give service without feeling uncomfortable while doing so.
There is this famous quote: “He who doesn’t know how to be a servant should never be allowed to be a master; the interests of public life are alien to anyone who is unable to enjoy others’ successes, and such a person should never be entrusted with public affairs.” Letter to AN Pleshcheev (October 25, 1888)} What I would like to see are people willing to make little sacrifices to get the job properly done.
This will not only bring about a harmonious living standard it will also bring about less government intervention and a reduced budget deficits across the board. Are we willing to give it a try or are we just happy being complainers and blindly paying for whatever that's being thrown our way? Do the math, if you can walk for miles at Carnival, you can definitely lift a hand to help your brother. Keep up the good work citizens, we are on our way to being service oriented.
