Good morning my peeps! Hump day is here!!!🐪
Today is gonna be a short one as I have a painting in progress and would love to finish it before I go back to work Friday…..
The furry support staff is relieved that last night is over and that neither the thunder monster nor the fireworks monster got to them last night. When I got home from work the entire staff met me at the door as if I had arrived just in the nick of time to save them…..poor babies. Minxy’s nerves were so frayed, she paced between my room and Justin’s all night long. This morning all of the furry ones are sleeping peacefully….
I have fantastic news!! My daughter Kayla is now a college graduate with her degree in paralegal studies!!! I am so proud of her!!! She has worked so hard for this! We will be having a celebration this Saturday in Wilmington. So if I don’t post, you will know why!
So the last two nights I have worked I have gotten out well passed closing. Sunday night it was 50 minutes passed, last night 25. When I left last night all the servers were long gone, but someone came in at 5 minutes before 10 to shop. Which is not a bad thing….but why not come in at oh let’s say 9:30 and shop for 30 minutes, instead of 5 minutes before closing and shopping for 30 minutes. Sunday night at 9:50 there were 14 tables full. The last table got up at 10:15 and then decided to shop for…..you guessed it….30 minutes. Granted we needed the sales but….dang!!!!
Which brings me to my topic…..consideration. Many times we become so blinded by our needs, our wants, our own comforts that we develop blinders to the world around us. We don’t think about the server who has been at work all day and is probably exhausted and just wants to go home. We don’t think about the postal worker who has been sitting in a hot mail truck all day and just wants some relief from the heat. We don’t think about the nurse who has seen dozens of folks during her shift and just wants to get some rest before she does it all over again the next day. While I agree that you should get what you pay for and that excellent customer service is key to success, it’s not always a black and white, wrong or right situation. The phrase “the customer is always right” has far outlived its purpose and meaning when customers have become arrogant, selfish, and obnoxious. I mean really, ….
Ok…..I have got to get busy….you all have a most wonderful day!
Scritches and biscuits for the furry support staff!
Takes care, take it easy and by all means
Play nice y’all!
