This may sound crazy, but I've never had a customer get angry with me at Native Cedar Boxes. I'm pleased to share because it may be a crazy world we live in, but typically, if you treat people as though they are valued for who they are other than just as customers, they'll treat you as an equal as well. No I haven't always made every customer happy easily, I specifically ask them multiple times if there is anything specific they would like or something unique added, and that establishes that I care about their satisfaction first, because life is about building relationships and connecting with LIFE, not chasing tickets and staying overworked and exhausted.
My grandmother is 79 and still drives, runs her errands and all that. I told her she canNOT be out anymore with the Coronavirus. She won't let me help, but at least I saw this on FB today https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2020/03/17/coronavirus-shopping-stores-introduce-time-for-vulnerable-elderly-pregnant/5074064002/ that a lot of stores are opening up early for the elderly and having special hours. I told her if she is going out to at least shop at one of those stores. Hope this helps someone.
A family of five came in husband wife and three children. They made their order and when it was time to pay the gentleman card declined due to an error. He didn't have any other form of payment and his wife was a diabetic and so was the youngest child which was 4 years old, and I took the liberty to pay for their whole meal without expecting anything in return. Later on that night before we closed the gentleman came and repaid me with interest and told me thank you and that is when I found out that his wife and youngest child were diabetics.
Hello everyone! I was working the other day and I had a huge smile on my face because I’m the first face people see as they enter the door. I look into people’s eyes when I say hello to them and ask them how there day is going. While for some people this is time consuming especially when we’re busy. I work in a very busy pet hospital. This woman was quiet and I could tell she was kind of down. I knew nothing was wrong with her dog, so I made small talk with her and offered to place her in a room before her actual appointment time. I then asked if I could bring her some coffee. She politely accepted. I returned to the room with her coffee, and she burst out into tears, and told me that she was so sad and in such a bad mood when she arrived, however because I made her feel at home, that day boosted her spirits with just my smile and her attitude completely changed. You never know what people are going through, but that made my day. Smile and observe people.
When I worked at Target I had this sweet older couple come through my line. They went to pay for a few groceries, but they were short $12. He began to count change on the belt and the wife debated what to put back. I was about to help them myself, when the guy behind them says don't work guys it's on me. He paid for their groceries. The older woman hugged him and asked for his address to repay him, but he said it wasn't a big deal. It sure was to them, and to me.
I helped an elderly man count his money out.. Poor thing, his eye sight is almost 100% gone and he handed me a 50 dollar bill thinking it was a 20 dollar bill.. I handed the 50 back and asked him if he needed help counting his money.. I told him to be careful for now on because the next person wont be so kind and trustworthy. .
Monday, a friend of mine told me that he was laid off from a major financial company because the company decided to outsource the jobs to India. I told him about jobcase and I sent him a few joblinks.
Yesterday, I reached out to a former client who works for a financial company and she told me to email her his resume , which happened in the next 10 minutes. As I am searching jobs for myself, I am also helping my friend with his job search. I am a firm believer when we help people (even we go through tough times) more doors and opportunities will open to us. #jobsearch #helpafriend #help #outsourcing #unemployment #wordofadvice #behelpful #bekind #beresourceful #keepbelieving #Godwillopendoors #JobcaseroftheDay
Today my peace I give to you and leave you. Continue to drive for success. Be kind to thine own self.
Have a wonderful weekend
Sonething I learned? Learning the difference between right and wrong. Lesrnong what is the kind thing to do. The caring thing to do. The proper thing to do. The right thing to do. People need help, they will always need help, but there wont always be someone there to help them so do what you can. Live a rewarding life by giving to others.
