You know I enjoy blogging, never really thought much of it till I started one here. So tonight I would like to apologize in advance for this rant.
Aren't you tired of every time you go to the gas station or the local fast food joint you walk out thinking "Man that guy behind the counter sure wasn't very friendly" ?
Have you ever wondered what happened to customer service?
Does anyone remember going to a store when everyone was nice and helpful, being greeted with a smile and departing with "Thank you please come again"?
I do and I miss those days. Don't you?
There was a time when I would walk into a business and if I felt the people working there were rude or unfriendly, I just wouldn't go back.
Problem is I ran out of places I could go. Now I make a point of noting businesses with friendly people and recommending them to friends. But still the list gets smaller.
I think of my self as a friendly person and I can strike up a conversation with any stranger for the most part. But even when I smile and say something witty and cute (yes I am witty and cute) the person working the other side of the counter hardly cracks a smile.
I just don't understand why people choose to go through life with that just smelled shit look on there face. I also don't understand why employers let these people in front of the public.
I don't know maybe as customers we don't say please and thank you enough or maybe we have that look.
So if your reading this here is what I want you to do. For the next few days I want you to smile real big to the employees at every business you got to. Even maybe say please and thank you. See if it makes a difference.
Then come back here and post your results.
I will be interested in hearing what happens.
OK thats enough for now So go have some fun or if you don't have any "GET YA SOME"
