|No need to be this elaborate. Just say 'thanks'.|
(Yes, you can pay your bills online and you can do that wearing any amount of clothes (or not) you want at any time during the day. Writing a check, putting a stamp on the envelope and going down to the Post Office to mail something gives people work. It makes them valuable to society. That's not what this post is about though. Read on.)
Anyway, this morning I was dropping my bills into the slot and a lady came out from the back room with one of those mail carts with the canvas bag holder in it. I was turned away and walking out the door when I stopped and said, "You know what? Thanks for what you guys do. I appreciate the work the postal service does and I think you're the best in the business."
She lit up like it was Christmas. "Wow! Thank you! That's very nice to hear." I smiled and walked away. I made someone's day without really trying and all it took was me noticing someone else. How hard is this, really? Think you can do it? I bet you can. See how good you feel by saying something nice to someone that they're not expecting to hear. Make it genuine and honest, don't be fake. If you can spot 'em a mile away so can everyone else.
G'head. Try it. Tell me what happens.
