- An airport worker went viral recently when news emerged of the dedication and consideration he puts into his job
- The man's simple daily routine makes life much easier for airline passengers with baggage
- The popularity of the post indicated just how much thoughtfulness is valued in South Africa
There's a common belief that service levels are not what they should be in South Africa and staff are often criticised by frustrated clients.
The sad reality is that a job is a means to an end for many and pride in the duty goes out of the window.
Martin Boloka is an exception and the diligence and consideration he shows was well received via social media.
Via the #ImStaying Facebook group, Phil Wilson took the time to share news of Martin's daily routine.
Phil caught a glimmer of Martin's job function, but marvelled at how he patiently checked and re-arranged every suitcase and positioned it to make it easier for the passengers to remove with the handle first.
Briefly.co.za noted the amazing reaction to the post and it soon became clear that Martin's meticulous efforts were greatly appreciated.
Anni Bartels Martin responded:
"You are leading by example! Salute."
Ernest Pherefere Marope added:
"Well done big brother."
Renee Burger explained how Martin compared to some other airport staff:
"Love this guy ORT are useless in comparison."
Lyn Lyndon revealed her admiration when she met Martin as well:
"I saw him too when we returned from PE 2 weeks ago!! I was struck by the care he was showing for every piece of luggage. Thank you Martin - you HAVE AND DO make a difference."
