Hints On Being A Holiday Customer

on 28 November 2009

Not much energy to write tonight. It was a long (rough) week at work, and I have stories for at least the next month. To generally summarize what this week has been like though, here are a few free pointers on being a customer:


– Don’t throw money on the counter when the cashier is standing right there. Unless, of course, you wouldn’t mind your card/change to be returned to you in the same fashion. It’s just degrading.

– Give workers a chance to go the extra mile. If you walk in, push past them demanding a certain piece of merchandise, and then push past them again to run out when you don’t find what you want, then you might miss them offering to track down the item for you. Just sayin’.

– Please don’t park right next to their main entrance and then carpool with a friend for the rest of the day. Customers still actually in town might like a good parking spot too.

– Ask the person on the other end of the cell phone to wait just 30 seconds while you give and complete your order. Starbucks ordering is complicated when you are fully focused on the task- it’s worse when you are distracted. Ah, I’m going to have to do a whole post on cell phone stories!


So that’s about all I have in me tonight. Christmas season is officially here, so run into your local store and see all the great new merchandise! For those of you who loved our Salted Caramel Signature Hot Chocolate last year, here’s a hint: take a look at this year’s three pack of cocoa mix. There has been great joy in my store!
