ATM Beta

Below is the message posted by Hang Seng Bank nearby ATM located at 417 Hennessy Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong.

For avoidance of pavement congestion, could customers please queue along the outer wall for ATM services.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

This is an example of both negative information and deliverables experience.

If Hang Seng Bank realizes that the location of ATM will cause pavement congestion, why then in the first place they placed the ATM at such an inconvenient location, which inevitably causes troubles for everyone? That's negative deliverables experience.

Hang Seng Bank asks a very stupid question in the message: "could customers please queue along the outer wall for ATM services." What if the customer says no? Could Hang Seng Bank do anything to this negative no? If no, then why ask? Besides, where is the "question mark" for the question? This is definitely a negative information experience.

2/F Part II

How can these people damage other people's property like this?!

That's negative deliverables experience as a result of negative people experience.

2/F Part I

This is the note the inhabitants (a couple) of the captioned address sticks to the door of the inhabitants living below when they are being complained for creating noises during the middle of the night.

To My Dear lovely neighour,

Thanks for your remind!

Just want to let you know, we can always be considerate except to the people who need to pay respect. But not the people who like to switch on other neighbour lighting deliberately. (So Funny).

By the way, if I'm too noisy next time, you can call the police or talk to us directly !


PS: I like your Winnie the Pool memo pad. So cute!

This is the behavior of a selfish couple, with poor English writing skills.

It is a classic example of negative information experience.

Two Traveling Angels Part I

Thank you Onki for this inspiring article.

Keep reading to the bottom of the page... don't stop at the feet (You'll see why).

Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family.

The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion's guest room.

Instead the angels were given a small space in the cold basement.

As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it.

When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied,

"Things aren't always what they seem."

The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very hospitable farmer and his wife.

After sharing what little food they had, the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night's rest.

When the sun came up the next morning the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears.

Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field.

The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel how could you have let this happen?

The first man had everything, yet you helped him, she accused.

The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let the cow die.

"Things aren't always what they seem," the older angel replied.

"When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall. Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he wouldn't find it.

"Then last night as we slept in the farmers bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him the cow instead.

Things aren't always what they seem."

Sometimes that is exactly what happens when things don't turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just need to trust that every out come is always to your advantage. You just might not know it until some time later...
