Put a smile on the face of a gate keeper
I am sure you pass through your gate so many times in a day and the gatekeeper opens and closes the gate without complaining. The gatekeeper sees you going out for lunch and coming back when you are quite satisfied. Do you ever remember to say hallo to the gatekeeper? Do you remember to surprise the gatekeeper with something to eat? Do you give your gateman any gifts? Make a day for your gatekeeper by putting a smile on his face. You keep frauds and terrorists at bay when the gatekeeper has a smile on his face. Seriousness does not mean you carry a tough face!
