I basically live to out friendly people in customer service positions. Especially because it’s not that hard. Sometimes I do it just because I am feeling really friendly, other times because I feel like they are not being friendly and I feel like my over friendliness probably annoys them some.
People who I find are really great and simple to out friendly are gas station employees. I feel like they have a lot of really not so great days, though I can’t imagine why, it doesn’t seem like you would really get that many really angry customers in a gas station.. whatever. Another great person to out friendly is the typical walmart/ target employees, especially during the holidays. because you know they are tired and probably a little grouchy, and probably don’t feel like saying happy holidays to you. And I LOVE to just say it with the biggest smile on my face like my day couldn’t possibly be better than it is right now. In the not holiday season I usually just settle with beating them to saying “have a great day!” in my very most cheery voice. And then if I’m really lucky they are stunned and have to cast about for some other line, because I just stole theirs. *sigh* I LIVE for that moment.
– Side note- speaking of friendliness, you know what else I love? People unfriending me on facebook. Because then I can just re add them and you know they just feel SO STUPID! hahahaha
