A considerate person

I visited Nanyang Junior College to give a talk to the students. After arriving at the school, I found several empty Visitors parking lots next to the main entrance. The remaining lots, presumably used by the teachers, were all occupied.

It is so easy to find these parking lots. This is a wonderful welcome to any visitor to the school. 

The principal was considerate in giving priority to the visitors. He also made sure that there were sufficient lots reserved for the visitors. 

I have visited many other places where all the parking lots were occupied by the staff. Some of the empty lots were "reserved for the staff". These places do not consider the visitors or customers to be important, and were accorded low priority.

I hope that more people in Singapore can be considerate, like the principal of Nanyang Junior College.
