I went to a salon for a haircut. As the hairdresser is busy, I need to wait there for my turn. I just ran through some pages of style magazines there.
A kid came before me seemed so curious about the hairdresser’s job and he asked so many questions to him.
“How many customers you handle a day?”
“20-25 customers, dear”
“How much you think you can earn from this job, will this job be enough for your family?”
“I am making enough to ensure they are happy!” he replied.
“What happiness you get in cutting the messy hairs of people all the day?”
The hairdresser did not respond to him, as he had finished styling his hair. He started showing the mirror to the kid, “How it looks kid?, Hope you like this”
“That’s fantastic! I am looking smarter now, ” he appreciated the hairdresser. I could sense the happiness on the kid’s face when he looked at the mirror.
He paid the hairdresser and was about to leave.
“One minute kid, I didn’t answer your last question” stopped the hairdresser and said “It’s not about my happiness”.
I was amazed at the good human side of the hairdresser and it was my turn then.
“Let me give you some happiness” I mimicked the kid and we all smiled.
