[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]Hospitality starts with plain folkI went to a court office to report that I lost my checks. The court employee said that I should go back to the police to get a lost material slip. The employee did not even turn his face to me, saying that I should follow the guidelines in the paperwork. But there were too many instructions: First I should visit an office downstairs and then go up to the other offices to get other paper work, and so on.
Most of all, the legal terms written on the paper were too unfamiliar. I had to ask what they meant, but no one paid attention to me.
I was very disappointed at the attitudes of the employees of a state judicial body. I could not believe that our governmental officials and employees are still so unkind, whereas our hospitality during the World Cup was heralded around the world.
I think the best way to show our hospitality is to be kind to ordinary citizens asking for help.
