We have a new colleague in our office who never smiles. I wasn’t introduced to her when she got into this office earlier this month. Perhaps I was not sitting in my cubicle at that time. I only saw her couple of times in the elevator. The genius didn’t even hold the elevator for me. Talk about being totally inconsiderate.
I was wondering who she was. I was thinking maybe she was an external auditor. You know, auditors.. they are always so serious. Haha. Then I found out, she was actually our new colleague. My other colleagues from the same floor as her said that, they never see her smiling even once since she started working here. She has a totally sour face. Like vinegar.
It doesn’t take much to smile actually. A smile would put people at ease, even if you don’t know the person. It feels really good when you smile at a stranger and the stranger smiles back at you. Of course, not till the extent of smiling widely and giggling while looking at strangers – they will think you are nuts! Haha!
Even my little niece knows how to smile warmly. Perhaps, this colleague should take some smiling lesson from this 6-month old baby.
