In most cases, we never realise how lucky we are to be employed. You may be a cleaner, clerk, or CEO; you may be working for a well-known or not so popular company but I urge fellow Malawians never to bite the hand that feeds them.
I have seen, time and again, domestic workers that rudely tendered in their resignation or stopped following the household rules because they were tired of working. Looking at their faces and judging by their attitudes, it was clear that they wanted to quit. However, after quitting or being fired, most came back for the job; looking significantly darker and having lost some weight.
It just shows that most people take their jobs (or indeed other peopleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kindness) for granted. And, judging from the complaints that most people churn out at work on a daily basis, a lot of us take employment for granted too.
Value your jobs. You were selected from thousands of applicants because your employer had hope in you. There are thousands of people who wish they had the very same job that you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t appreciate. Let us learn to respect and be grateful for our day-to -day jobs. In these hard economic times, we are blessed to be employed, so letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s change our attitudes towards our jobs.
