Exposure really not a part of his job


“You listen to people so that you can imagine them, and you hear all the terrible and wonderful things people do to themselves and to one another, but in the end the listening exposes you even more than it exposes the people you’re trying to listen to.” ― John Green, Paper Towns

This photo speaks for itself. Many things happen outside a bottle return depot. Some of the them downright commendable while others are truly  noteworthy of the diverse sides of the human condition. 

A few months ago when the weather was a tad warmer I noticed this fellow huffing and puffing and struggling to perform repairs to a cement walled structure outside a bottle return depot.

His male helper had left the area a short time earlier and he was trying desperately to not only climb a nearby wooden ladder but also single-handedly hoist a heavy plank off the ground.

His total concentration and commitment to the task caused him to forgo concerns of propriety and decorum and focus all his efforts on job completion.  — gc

  1. Amazing comittment on his part, and something to honour. So little seen in the upcoming generation so superinvolved in themselves with little work or any ethics. I would have applauded that man’s efforts, or walked over to assist, even though I can barely move myself. How treasured is he. So glad you noticed, took the pic and spoke to this.

    • I hope this photo applauds all those people who give more than 100 per cent to their jobs. An anthem to the common workers who gets totally absorbed in their work and not their interests. Thank you for writing. Have an enjoyable weekend. Take care. Be safe.
