My Last Meal Alone :)

Well I do have the meal on the plane but I thought I would treat myself to a high protein low carb meal. I’m sat in terminal 3 at a restaurant called Oriel.  I’ve been with the family before on one of our trips to HK.  
It’s interesting to observe travellers.  Everyone that is alone, like me, is either in their iPhone or reading a book or listening to music.  I suppose I would usually do the same (and probably will in a bit) but I prefer to observe, listen, and analyse.  What am I doing? Learning about people’s behaviours and how we interact with each other.
For example, the waitress is always smiling.  They should be! That’s basic.  It makes customers feel welcomed. They ask how my food is.  They ask if I want some dessert.  Basic and not over the top.  That to me is common courtesy. Even if you are not in the industry.
I think everyone should work in the service industry and deal with people.  You may have the knack for it but I think those that say they don’t will eventually learn.  Just being around these happy people will make you much happier.  Unless you have some degenerate condition that doesn’t allow you to be outside or interact with people.  On a whole, those people we work with at our office are all ‘normal’.  They deal with service people all the time when they shop.  So why don’t they learn anything?
So observe, listen and analyse.  I’m sure not too many people do this. Don’t be self absorbed. Learn what’s going on around you.
Oh by the way this is what I ate:

And I’m excited to see……
