People-watching : The Honest Juice Guy

I was sitting at my usual seat at Grand Hyatt's JP Teres. 

A person caught my eye. I don't know if it was a man or a woman (let's just assume it's a he), his body was blocked with the fruit chiller. I could only see his hands up to his forearms as he was washing a bottle.

He was washing a bottle, the kind that you keep sauces or mayonnaise. He scrubbed the bottle so vigorously and thoroughly with generous amount of soap. He even poured in the soap water in, shook it and rinsed it vigorously. I saw him turning off the tap and checked if the bottle was properly cleaned. I could see him bringing the bottle closer to his nose, probably trying to sniff if it stinks. 

He probably thought "Nope." and he washed it again. More soap, more water. Till he was done. 

He checked the bottle again. "Nope." and he cleaned the bottle again. And again. And again.

And it struck me how honest this man is. No one was even watching him (he couldn't see me, i assume). He was alone there but he cleaned it again and again, as if someone was watching and inspecting everything. I don't know about you, but this says a lot to me about the person. It's the value that the person carries, that he truly wants something done a certain way because he wants to; not because "my boss will get mad if i don't". 

It's a rare occasion that i see such an honest man in the tourism and hospitality industry. I hope he gets a raise.
