A Pat on the Back from an Earth Angel
A harried bookstore clerk's day is made, thanks to some positive feedback.
Working at a bookstore is usually fun, but that day I was struggling. The questions kept coming.
“Where can I find the cookbooks?”
“You’re all out of coloring books!”
“Do you sell diaries? Calendars? Bookmarks?”
Some days I just felt burned out. I checked my watch, happy to see my break was coming soon.
A woman approached me. “How can I help?” I asked her.
“I’ve worked in the customer service business for ages,” she said, “so I know outstanding service when I see it.” She asked my name and drafted a letter of praise to give to my boss right there in the store.
As it turns out, I didn’t need a break after all. Kind words were much more rejuvenating.
