receive a simple thank you after my money is paid for these services or items. When did “Have a nice day” become the new expression of
gratitude in our society?
When I was a young man I worked in a few fast food establishments to make extra spending money while attending high school. At that time it
was mandatory to thank the customer for his or her business. That doesn’t appear to be the case today. Never forget that the world and all its inhabitants owe you nothing, so be grateful when receiving compensation for any task or product.
If someone, anyone, expresses their gratitude when I hand them my hard-earned money, I’m elated. I will make sure they know their words
are appreciated and always acknowledge them with a “You’re welcome” — and in some instances even tip the person that expressed this sentiment.
So please listen to my words and take heed, both young and old; Never stop expressing your gratitude to patrons of your business whether you are the lowest employee on the totem pole or the CEO. Your life will be enriched in so many ways and your prospects of success in business and the “Game of Life” will be increased exponentially!
In closing I wish to thank you, the reader, for taking the time to read my brief words. Stay happy and well, and prosper! You can comment on The Duke of Fremont Street Facebook page.
