“The back” is not a magical wonderland.
No one needs you to leave them a handwritten note to tell them they had a bad day at their job.
Nothing makes me happier than happy customers who just like to chat and be friendly. Those are the customers I want to keep checking in on and going back to because they’re kind. Kindness is everything in life folks and guess what? It’s free!
So, I guess what I’m saying is that you need to treat others like they are people.
And that is the story of the best customer I’ve ever had. Be kind to somebody today.
I think that we are far too interested in determining the success of a person through their progression through the pedagogically dictated timeline of high school to college to life.
I look to my left by my work station in the back, and there is this mountain of shit on the floor. Instantly I vomited on the floor beside me. I was in SHOCK! I never thought in a million years this could/would happen.
We get paid to wear makeup each day and look good while closed off from the ambient madness and chatter.
We know how to be polite to people we don’t like. We found ways to polite to our lazy co-workers; to our demanding bosses; to our insane customers who tried to return ticket switched items. We can deal with almost all annoying people that life throws us.
If it weren’t frowned upon, this would actually make for a very fast-paced drinking game.
