'Cause, frankly, this thread has me depressed.
Surely someone out there is doing something right, right? Doesn’t have to be huge earth-shattering, write to the CEO customer service, just things that made your day a little easier or happier for a few minutes.
Me, I like it when I’m ordering a slew of non-value meal items and the cashier works it all out to be the cheap way. Y’know, I want 4 cokes and 3 cheeseburgers and one chicken rings and 5 fries, two with cheese, and she somehow works that out into value meals or whatever’s cheapest for me. Without me having to figure it out on my own.
Not going to change the world, I know. But I appreciate it.
I like waitresses at casual dining restaurants who make me feel like they recognize me even when they probably don’t. Not a creepy stalker thing, just a “Hey! How have you been? Great to see you, what would you like today?” That’s it, no long cross-examinations about my kids, just a little recognition, well-faked. Makes me feel like Norm on Cheers.
I liked it when the guy at the Pier One last week helped me carry my bags out to my car, and then skeedaddled quickly enough that I didn’t stand there wondering if I should tip him. He wasn’t rude (quite the opposite - very friendly), he just did it and said good-bye and that was it.
So who else has one?
