Two Tips Tuesday

Hi everyone! Happy Two Tips Tuesday to you all! Jumping right in…

Tip #1:
If you receive excellent service somewhere, tell the person and their manager. Too often our society is quick to complain when something bad happens, but will almost never rejoice when something good happens. We live in a society where people will complain just to get free stuff, but never bother to build up fellow brothers and sisters with praise.

There were two times in my very recent past where I received excellent service and I made sure to tell the appropriate people about it. Once was at Carter’s when my mother in law and I were shopping for baby clothes. The Assistant Manager was helping us check out and she went above and beyond the call of duty. She showed us how to access their coupons via facebook, was patient with any questions we had and took the time to chat with us instead of rushing us out the store. I got the corporate phone number and called to praise her work ethic. The second time was this weekend when Tolar and I were out for a date. We had dinner at Legal Seafood and Tolar’s dinner left a lot to be desired. He wasn’t upset because clearly it wasn’t the cook’s or the server’s fault, it just wasn’t to his liking. When our wonderful server Maddie asked if he liked it he told her no and she immediately offered to bring him something else. Tolar declined, but Maddie took it upon herself to send over a free dessert and her manager just to check on us. We didn’t ask for the dessert, nor did we expect anything. She went the extra step to try and make us happy. On our way out, we found another manager and told him how impressed we were with Maddie’s service. She was terrific and if we ever go back, we will definitely ask to sit in Maddie’s section.
