One day in the city of Lagos, a young applicant was invited for an interview. The next morning he dressed up and made headway.
He got to the bus terminal and unfortunately there were more passengers waiting than transit bus. Not knowing what to do as time was not at his side, he waited in anxiety.
luckily after waiting for about 25minutes, a 14-seater bus turned-up, occupied with 10 passengers.
Five other passengers boarded, including the applicant who luckily secured the last seat. unfortunately among the  passengers that strove to enter, an elderly woman could not secure a seat. she beckoned the driver to wait while she alight since there was no seat left, the applicant immediately stood up and ask her to sit  while he stood inconveniently.

In a short while, the applicant bumped into the office when the interview had already commenced. Ashamed of his lateness, he sat cowardly as every eyes glued him. Coincidentally the elderly woman barged into the office and all the staffs conducting the interview including their boss who happened to be the son to the woman, all stood to honour her. Elated that his mother came visiting, the boss offered her a seat. And right that instance, the elderly woman noticed the young man who stood for her to sit in the bus and implored his son(The boss) to offer him the job  after narrating his well-disposed manners towards her.
To crown it all in a short while the young applicant was made the general manager of the company home and abroad.
The highest form of wisdom is respect and kindness.
Every good turn deserves another
