Strike is a sign of healthy corruption free administration

Strikes  are a signal of healthy administration.

We have often seen and experienced strikes of BEST employees, Employees from Mumbai Local (Railways), Educationists and Private companies.

I strongly believe this to be a good indicator. Most often these strikes are a weapon to make management to agree to their demands. And these demands are (mostly), increase in salary or other directly related benefits.
Lets take it at the Police Force, the monthly pay of  a havaldar, sub-inspector,inspector may suffice for their basic needs but not for needs such as Standard of living, Education for their children.

However, they are able to meet their daily requirements and maintain their standard of living, despite their low pay. Its obvious that they can not engage in any other Part time activity / Job to justify their earning sources. So how actually do they earn (GET), that.

Its an established fact, Bribe. Thats the source of income which does suffice their needs, needs of their children- the best education, the status of living.

Force by the influential people is NOT the *only* reason that they take bribe. They take it as thats the Easy way to meet and Exceed their basic needs. Thats the reason, why Pintya from Shaitan does that… He Does not go for a Strike, rather he goes for the Bribe. Pavan Malhotra’s dialogue from Shaitan shows the truth

Sach aur sacchai me fark hota hai, Aur Mathur HAR PULISWALE KA DHARM HAI KI WOH NI-SWARTH BHAV se DESH ki sewa kar, Leki Sacchai Yeh hai ki Sade AAth hazaar ki is tankhwa me Desh sambhalo, Ghar sambhalo ya Imaan sambhalo… Maa ki AAnkh ho jati hai.

They still have the easy way…. Strike is healthy.

McDonalds- You Pay for the water UPDATED *

After the beautiful month of Ramadan, I and my friends had been to an outing and as obvious we were hanging out at McDonalds.

As usual customer service is the priority at McDonald’s. Though it is a self-serve environment but still they oblige to requests of customers and serve the orders.

Orders are ready in minutes, separate queue for takeaways. Reps managing queue at rush hours. Most importantly, the whole store turns into a battlefield at times, and we can see the reps managing order queue on a little LCD screen indicating order time and wait time. You might have been surprised by watching the 2 minute hourglass.

Overall just awesome.

There are times when some stuff goes out of stock and we can’t buy it. Sounds perfect, but what if you paid for it if it ran out of stock.

This happened with us, we ordered we ate, we enjoyed and talked, talked, and talked. Now we were really thirsty, as obvious we went to the counter and asked for Water and to our surprise, we were said that they were out of stock with water.. What  ? Out of Stock with Water ? How can you do that ?

Later i had a look at the bill for the stuff we paid for, and i was surprized to see this (#incl serv chgs for pkgd water)

McDonalds You pay for the water

I hesitated and then gathered courage to go up to the counter with One of my friends (Others were just pushing us to do this).

At the first attempt the lady at the counter, informed us that Drinking Water is Not available due to some filter Issues (Very Rare scene at McDonalds), and that they Should Make some arrangements. She didnt budge and Instead Asked us to Buy Bottled water.

Time to get legal, i informed her that the bill is inclusive of packaged water and We NEED it.

She escalated this to the manager and the Manger Informed us that water will be Served at Our desk, and It was indeed in few minutes (covertly in Coke containers)

What A Coke

Service disruptions do occur, Lying to customers about it is not a resolution.

A sincere apology is just enough to get the message, and anyways the team is working at its best to resolve the issue.

For those sincere customers, kindly check what You Pay for… and End up paying double.
