Rude clerks don't have the Christmas spirit
I finally decided to get all my Christmas shopping done in one day, at one store, and spent about two hours picking out the best gifts for my family and friends only to wait in line for 30 minutes and not have the cashier say one word to me.
Nothing, nada, zilch! She didn't even tell me the total for the items I just purchased. I had to look on the register's screen myself.
Normally I would have confronted her about it, but I have the holiday spirit and didn't want to make a scene.
I have heard about holiday depression and the Christmas blues - and I'm not asking for long, drawn-out conversations with strangers - but when you have a job that requires you to deal with the public, is a smiling face too much to ask for?
Companies spent tons of money training their workers to learn the ends and outs of their jobs, but how much time is spent on customer service?
In my opinion, customer service is the one thing that will keep the customers coming back.
So to all of you who work in the public eye and are lacking a little cheer, throw the bah-humbugs aside and force a smile or greet your customers with a warm hello.
It may not seem like a big deal to you, but to the person across the counter, it could make their day just a little bit brighter.

$500 Bunge gift cards on hold until construction date set - 666 views
In order to ease the concerns of residents who live near Bunge North America in Destrehan, the grain elevator promised $500 gift cards to 100 residents if the St. Charles Parish Council approved a zoning change that would pave the way for a $50 million construction project. The council gave Bunge the OK in October, but the gift cards have yet to materialize.
