Whether we admit it or not, we tend to judge others by their looks. The way we treat strangers sometimes varies based on their outward appearance. Sometimes, this judgmental attitude comes back to bite us. Such was the case with this waitress and an old man who was secretly her boss in disguise.
The story starts with an old man walking into a lavish restaurant. He wore plain clothes, far from the grand and elegant interior of the place.
A waitress named Ani was tasked to attend to his needs. Judging by his looks, Ani thought that this poor farmer couldn’t afford anything from the menu. She then approached him.
The old man was weary and asked for a glass of water, but Ani dismissed his request and rudely said, “Here there is no water, only expensive wine and drinks, if you do not want to order those please leave immediately!”
The old man insisted that he will order once he is given water to drink. Ani didn’t believe him. Instead, she ordered him to leave.

“You will not be able to pay for food and drinks here, do not waste our time and just leave!” she said.
The old man had no choice but to leave. He stood up and said to Ani, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Treat others like the way you want to be treated.
The next day, the owner of the restaurant arrived.
As the doors opened and the restaurant staff gladly greeted the big boss, blood drained from Ani’s face as she recognized the man. Her boss was the old farmer she sent away yesterday!
She apologized and begged, but it was too late. Her boss fired her.
Although this story is clearly a work of fiction, it holds nuggets of truth that are universal across cultures. We must always take care not to judge others hastily just because of the way they look.
