He is proud because in two years he has received no warnings or reprimands.

3 One day, he looked for the manager to make him a complaint: “Sir, I’ve been working in this company for two years. I like my job and work hard, but I feel I am not valued. “Sir, I’ve been working in this company for two years. I like my job and work hard, but I feel I am not valued. Look, Rob started in a position like mine just 6 months ago and he has been promoted to Supervisor.” Look, Rob started in a position like mine just 6 months ago and he has been promoted to Supervisor.”

4 Uhmmmmm the manager thought and said: “I would like your help in solving a problem. I would like to give some fruit to the employees at lunch today. In the market, which is on the corner they sell fruit. Please, can you ask if they have oranges?” “I would like your help in solving a problem. I would like to give some fruit to the employees at lunch today. In the market, which is on the corner they sell fruit. Please, can you ask if they have oranges?”

5 John tried his best to do this task job and 5 minutes later he returned… O.K John, what did you ask? Is there another fruit we can use instead of oranges? And how much were they? O.K, but did you see if they have enough oranges for everyone? Sir, they have oranges to sell !! Ahhhh….I didn’t ask I didn’t ask it Sir I don’t know Sir, but I think…

6 O.K, please sit down for a moment. The manager took the phone and called Rob. When Rob was in front of them, the manager gave to him the same instruction as he gave to John and 10min. later, Rob came back.

7 Sir, they have oranges, enough for everyone, but if you prefer they also have banana, papaya, melon and mango. The price of the oranges is UGX / kg. The banana is UGX per bunch, mango is UGX 7.000/kg, papaya and melon UGX 3.000/kg. They told me if we buy 25% more they will give us 8% discount. I reserved the oranges but if you prefer another fruit I have to go back to confirm the reservation. Thank you Rob!!! But wait a moment please… Ok Rob what news do you have for me? When Rob was in front of the manager, he asked:

8 The manager looked at John who was waiting amazed and said to him: Nothing Sir, excuse me. John, what were you talking to me about?

9 MORAL It is important to do our jobs, with our best effort, even for the simplest activity; otherwise nobody will give us the most important jobs. Every time that we use information correctly, we have the opportunity to personalise it. If you think that this MORAL can be useful to your brothers, sisters, cousins, family, colleagues, share it with them,…be like Rob, not like John. Don’t leave that MORAL just in the workshop!!!
