How much do we respect other people’s time? Not much. Probably one of the reasons for our present situation. We, in general, don’t care about other’s time, space. That’s why we have a habit of appearing at least an hour late than the actual time and mock ourselves saying “It’s Nepali time”.
Today, I went to pay the monthly phone bill at Nepal Telecom’s Naxal Exchange. I reached there 10 minutes after the offical opening time. Only two people were behind the counter, despite the fact that there should be 5 working counters by 10. This definitely shows the carefree attitude of Nepal Telecom (NTC), which has the responsibility of connecting Nepal. Are they to be trusted? Monopoly is the major factor for such scenario.
The two queues were pretty long. After staying in a queue for around 20 minutes, a peon came and summoned both the working persons. Upon interogating, they were called by their boss for a meeting. Meeting at this rush hour? We were shocked. —anjesh.blogspot.com
