A lesson in attitude

This is an abstract of a message from a Malaysian who was on a work assignment at VOLVO in Sweden.
Can this EVER happen in our place ?

“The first time I was in Sweden, one of my colleagues picked me up at
the hotel every morning. It was September, bit cold and snowy. We
would arrive early at the company and he would park far away from the
entrance (2000 employees drive their cars to work).

The first day, I didn't say anything, neither the second or third
Then one morning I asked him, "Do you have a fixed parking space? I
notice that we park far from the entrance even when there are no other
cars in the lot."

To which he replied,
"Since we're here early we'll have time to walk,
don't you think that whoever gets in late will need a place closer to
the door?"

Imagine my face.”
