Questions

Why do prisons, hospitals, and mental institutions use an ugly grey-green colour on the walls? Why wouldn't they use a cheerful sunshine yellow- something you'd like to see at home?

Oh no, here I go with my sterotypes again...but you all seem to take it so well.

I've heard (and I don't know this first hand) that British are particularly terrible with customer service and that this may have something to do with the old class mentality, and the people serving trying to prove that they are now equal to the customer. Anyone think there is any truth to that?

Now...to answer the question, I have worked in hospitality, and I now work with international students, I love working with customers and clients. I've always had a 'rule of thumb' which really is just something that comes naturally to me because I like people and am interested in them.

I always treat my establishment as my home, and anyone who comes in is my invited guest, and I want to do anything I can to make them feel at home, put them at ease, and get them whatever they need to be comfortable. It used to work very well for me back when I was a waitress, and people would come back years later because they remembered the wonderful service. (My bosses never considered me a top employee though, because I was rather slower than the other wiatresses, but most of the customers would tell me I gave them the best service they'd ever had, so...)

Oh yeah, and I don't do sales. It goes against my grain to have an ulterior motive for being nice. I really don't like it.

Another thing is I don't differentiate. If a repair man comes in, I show him the same courtesy I do to a client. Again, this comes naturally to me. It's good though, because important agents don't always announce who they are.

Don't embarrass me with a public question! How mortifying! Just look at the 'my friends' on the left hand toolbar.

Because you live in cold England. If you lived in Cairns it would be the reverse!

I've actually never noticed misinformation on Wiki. I love it, my brother and I use it to solve all our little trivia squabbles. Wiki has the final say with us.
