I went to fuel my car this afternoon, gave instructions the pump attendant on the amout of fuel i wanted gave her the money, and waited for my balance.
A minute later, she came trembling ” Ssebo Nsonyiwa, ntaddemu Petrol mukiffo kya Diesel” Translated as ” I am so sorry sir, forgive me, I have put petrol instead of Diesel” 🙆
I immediately stopped the engine, took a deep breath and got out of my car, she kept looking at me as if expecting certain words from me..
I calmly asked her what the solution would be and she told me it would take 30 min to empty the Engine, blow it and put the right fuel back.
And again I told her, to proceed as I looked calmly.
We were done in about 40 min. but in all this she kept looking at me as if I should say something.
Finally when all the process was completed, she came to me and paused a very simple/hard question.
“I want to know why you didn’t shout at me or even abuse me?
Please tell me, she insisted with tears in her eyes.
I waited for her to finish crying, Only to tell me that she is a single mum and my Calmess just saved her Job.
