Typically escalator rides are very boring. Most of the time we encounter people with a grumpy look who stare or talk on the phone with absurd conversation making no sense. We are left with no choice but to listen or look around. This morning on my way to work I met a perfect stranger in the escalator. He smiled and I smiled back (out of courtesy). His floor arrived and the gates opened. I wished him “Have a nice day”. To that he responded politely “You too”.

Now this is a very trivial thing, could be termed as social manners,Β etiquette or whatever.Β My point here is…simple things can actually make a huge difference to our outlook. Our attitude towards life. Could be a feel-good-factor and possibly our rest of the day is well spent?

I guess it’s all about making it good for you and people around you and life becomes much more easier!!
