A simple act of kindness, a courteous greeting, and a helping hand is always encouraged and cherished. These petty gestures might not add a lot of value to a person but definitely works as a mood lifter. It’s also something that we would want to reciprocate to others, knowing that they would also feel good, the way we did.
Hence, when a woman at Bengaluru airport was wished sweetly by the ground staff, it made her heart smile.
A Twitter user named Amanda was elated when inside one of the women’s washrooms at the Bangalore airport, she spotted a staff member who was very kindly wishing every person leaving the washroom, “Happy journey!” So, she decided to tell about it to the world.
“In one of the women’s washrooms at the Bangalore airport, there’s this staff person who very sweetly wishes every person leaving the washroom, ‘Happy journey!’ Always makes my journey very happy, indeed,” she wrote.

Apparently, it’s not just her, but many passengers also saw this very staff and were greeted in the same manner at the airport. Recalling their encounter with her, women online shared how cheerful and courteous the staff member was.
Came across her during a long layover and she wished me EVERY SINGLE TIME I went to the bathroom. Made an otherwise terrible day slightly bearable..

Many of the Bangalore airport janitors and staff do that. I think it’s a BIAL thing.

Interestingly, it happens in the men’s washroom too.
Even in the men’s room, occasionally someone puts in a good word.

Also happens in the Men’s. Little saddening that most passengers don’t even acknowledge these hard working people. And just saying thank you (maybe a small tip) with eye contact is the least we can all do 🙂

Happens in the men’s washroom too. I have also seen some staff who even pull off tissues and wait till we wash hands. That is a little overwhelming tbh

Yes , in men’s washroom, a staff wish the passengers. While my brain is occupied with thoughts of getting a cab / airport bus , plans , meets … This gentle wish brings a pause and smile 🙂

Humility and kindness go a long way. We wish nothing but happiness for this anonymous lady who has been cheering everyone around at the airport.
