When in doubt, give thanks. Happy Wednesday all! I don't know about you, but between last week and this week, my life has been fairly busy. Although I've had some not so good times, I always like to reflect on what's good in my life to put things into perspective. The added bonus is that you feel better after said reflection too. :) So, here we go:
1) This is gonna sound simple once you read it, but sometimes it makes all the difference. I went to Wal-mart a couple days ago to get a few things. I just have to tell you that, I probably live near the worst one in existence! They aren't consistent with the items they stock, if they are stocked at all and customer service at the check out lines doesn't exist.. and I'm totally not exaggerating here. (Why I shop there is a story for another day) Anyway, I just popped in there for something quick and when I got to the register the woman actually greeted me with a hello, asked if I found everything okay, as well as asked how I was doing. I was floored. She was..... friendly!! That had never happened at this Wal-Mart before! It was great and it made me feel like she appreciated my business. Now while I know that more often than not 'friendly' customer service is fake, (trust me when I tell you I know about these things. I have many years of customer service training) despite that factor it made me smile and feel good and that's the important part. I totally appreciated that. Thank you friendly Wal-Mart cashier. That made my day. :)
