Great Admonition

Sampai di rumah lagi, duduk di teras lagi, setelah seharian di luar rumah. Pagi hari dimulai dgn jadwal ngawas ujian di Mercu, kebetulan banget pas nyampe, terus parkir motor, mampir sarapan di warteg sblah kampus, hujan deras banget turun. Nothing special selama ngawas. Setelah ngawas sempat ngobrol2 dgn mahasiswa ttg franchise Alfamart, kebetulan dianya bagian License di Alfamart pusat. Selesai tugas, heading to Bintaro, meeting my beloved ones.

Sampai di bintaro, setelah memuaskan rindu to my Princess Nada, keliling daerah Sarmili, daerah dkat kampus STAN, nyariin kost cewek buat anak teman my mother who intends to join USM STAN this June. Alhamdulillah langsung dapat, jadi kamarnya gabung dgn yg punya rumah. Yg empunya rumah, bu haji orang2 pada manggil, ternyata baru kena musibah, baru seminggu suaminya meninggal. Kost nya lumayanlah, utk sementara, worth lah dgn 400rb sebulan. Selesai, balik lagi, pusing, karena selama nyari kost kena gerimis, ga pake helm lagi.

Pelajaran hidup sesungguhnya baru didapat ketika ngobrol dgn driver Blue Bird yg akan ngantar my wife n daughter to Serpong. I totally respected him, 4 his statements, 4 his commitment of life. He told me he once had worked at Maybank before he joined Blue Bird. We chat a lot about Blue Bird’s HR system which impressed him. He just regreted why he didn’t join the company from the very first time. The most remarkable statement dari dia yg truly made me feel ashamed adalah ketika dia bilang, ‘sy selalu nganggap semua yg sy kerjakan ibadah, Pak’, dan tanpa ada nada kesombongan dari cara bicaranya. Dia yatim mulai usia 6 tahun, dan sejak itu dia sudah nyari uang dgn nyemir di kereta. Kalimat yg benar2 membuat i feel so dumb in dealing with life adalah, ‘sy ga pernah dan ga pernah mau ngeluh, karena sy ikhlas melakukan semua kerjaan saya.’ Benar2 ngerasa malu dgn diri sendiri. Padahal mungkin beban hidup dia bisa lebih berat compared to mine. He has given me a very precious talk yg blm tentu setiap saat datang. Benar kata2 ‘walaupun keluar dr dubur ayam, kalau namanya telur pasti berharga, meskipun keluar dari dubur bangsawan paling mulia, apapun namanya tetap najis.’ which means, kita harus mau menerima pelajaran dari siapapun asalkan utk kebaikan.

The wierd thing was, i didn’t know his name, i didn’t think 2 look at his name tag nor ask him directly what his name is. My wife also didn’t asked his name. Atau mungkin dia someone sent by God to remind people like me who often complain almost about e’thing without thanking Him 4 all other blesses He has given. Whoever he is, i thank God 4 being reminded. That’s all now.
