Few parents teach their kids respect anymore. That is what it all boils down to. Respect yourself and others. We are all in this strange thing called LIFE together. We can make it good or bad. You make a choice.....
Wow what a thought..Hilda thank you for sharing it ..i feel same..yesterday(22 nov 2012) I've been to our head office and there in absence of Chairperson ,his subordinate misbehaved with me and i was feeling like helpless and cried/weeped ..but at last i shut him up of his rude and unaccepted behavior with a female very junior colleague(me,Renuka Singh)..LIFE gives us lesson and demon male like Ranjit pal dont deserve respct from a girl like me,u and so many others who need help but dont/cant express themselves!
I worked in customer service for years and and totally empathize with those who still do. people are getting grouchy these days and it just seems to keep getting worse. It's a ME, ME, ME, world we seem to be living in here in the Western Hemi. I hope to all above that the Kielberger brothers manage to create some really positive change for the young folk with their "Me to WE" conferences!
I hit a wall with bartending many years ago and had to walk away... Serving the public on a daily basis is one of the most soul depleting experiences I have had... I applaud those who still must do it to keep a roof over their heads and food in their fridge for themselves, and their families
Thank you so much for starting this petition. I work in retail and do my best to give great customer service, but there are those you just can't satisfy how try to make you miserable. But it's the others that see what happened and compliment me on how I reponded despite of that the rudeness that makes my day better. So to those wonderful customers thank you for your wonderful words of encouragement. To the others may God help you to see your rudeness does not ruin my day or spirit.
That's a great attitude to have!
I try to do this every day, but is wonderful to know there has been a special significant day designated to honor the ones who keep our world going! Yes, Scydonia, ALL work is honorable!
Hmmm..love the words Selfless Saturday...what a shift they create!
People who work in customer service are treated poorly by some of the customers they serve and also by some employersI worked in retail sales for 25years
i completely agree grandma!
show your appreciation for all they do for you and despite you
Count me in.
Being kind to others is the only way to spread kindness...
And it doesn´t matter if a cashier or anybody else had a bad day before we meet them, sometimes it is up to us if the day for someone else changes for the better or not...
This is a must for all of us who use someone's services in someway somewhere and in somepart of your lives.
I have total appreciation for anyone in the service industry, especially food service. My Mom was a waitress for over twenty years. Not only is it a physically challenging job, but, dealing with the public is not easy. I've always given good tips and have had a good repore with my servers. I sometimes have a hard time with the 20% gratuity deal, however, especially if they DO NOT provide good service. Congratulations to the Houston waiter, and to the couple who tipped him, bless their hearts!
