After an early morning meeting with a customer from India, I offered to drive him to his next meeting as he was already running late. He was grateful of course, especially since he isn't too familiar with Singapore.
I've been there before, so I dropped him off outside the office building and waved goodbye. After I left, it suddenly dawned on me that I had been presumptuous. I should have asked him for the address just in case the office is no longer there.
True enough, I checked later and found that they had recently moved to another building down the street. Oh dear, I had sent the poor guy to the wrong place! He must be cursing under his breath while rushing around in the sweltering heat.
I promptly texted him to apologise. He replied much later with a one-liner, "No issue."
I'm sure what he meant to say was "Need tissue! (to wipe the sweat pouring down my face)."
Oh well. I was just trying to be kind....
Maybe I need to read more to sharpen my wit and social skills.
I found this list of best-selling authors recommended by Elim Chew, a leading entrepreneur in Singapore. Some of you may find the list useful too.
