A lesson from a man on the subway

leave a comment »

He was very kind, gave up his seat so that the couple could sit next to each other.
He just started a part-time master course in chemical engineering.
He is from Hubei (from his accent, I guessed he is from Hunan, pretty close!), did undergrad in Xian, went to work to Shanghai.
When his company hired him, they asked:
1. Do you smoke?
2. Do you drink?
If you answer “No” to these 2 questions, your application will be rejected.
The rational of the company is that if you do not do either or both of those 2 things, you will not know how to de-stress and may cause short-term problems to the company.
Lesson learnt!
