I overheard this interesting anecdote at work. Unrelated to my trials at work but a story that does want you to make a difference, maybe...
An Indian and a Japanese were waiting at a bus stop in Japan. When the bus arrived, the India got in by inserting the required amount to open the doors of the bus. The Japanese did the same once the India entered. The Indian, once inside the bus, asked the Japanese "The door was open such that both of us could have entered. You could have come in without paying a single yen."
The Japanese guy's reply floored the Indian. He said, "I do not want to cheat my country."
Whats the connection? Sign up for this and let's start by stopping cheating our country and thus, ultimately ourselves. http://ipaidabribe.com/
I said maybe at the start of the post because even in a group of friends, you cannot get people to agree to it. If they were in Singapore, they will gladly stop spitting, littering and/or accept the harshest of fines and punishments meted out to them. But out here, they feel it is alright to do as they please.
This "follow the leader" and "crab" mentality is sending our country to the dogs. Let's stop that.
