One of these orders was ours. We were paying cash, some were paying the vendor's coupons, some others were paying sodexho passes. And none of us were tendering exact change.
The guy at the coffee counter is a super-quick juggler, I must say. You should see the speed at which all these orders were processed.
- The change for each payment were given out correctly.
- Coffee or tea or badam milk... you got what you asked for with the right specification without having to repeat your order.
- Everyone seemed to get their orders immediately. The wait time is almost negligible.
The requests kept flowing in and this person was working on each of them with the same speed and cheer and order. There was a complete harmony between the mind, the hand and the cheer on his face.
This is truly an art that only a very few people can manage to when under extreme work load. This guy reminded me of a juggler for some reason.. either the cheer or the quick juggle of things to do at hand, or the multi-tasking ability.. dont know which one caught my eye and attention, but all I can say is, however routine the job is, how much ever used-to he can be with his routine, it truly takes an attitude to keep up the efficiency with a harmony that he only can explain.
There is a lot to learn from this juggler at the coffee counter. We all have a chance to work in better work profiles and environments, but do we do our job as good as this guy? Think about it.
