Thank You

Last week a young man delivered Thai noodles to my door. I didn’t feel like cooking that night, you see. He wasn’t much for eye contact and clearly was in a hurry to move on to his next gig. We made the food/money swap and I offered a “thank you” as I prepared to close my door. At that, he looked up and gave me a big smile. “I’m the one who should be saying thank you to you,” he said. “Thank you for your business.” He gets it! He understands how it all should work. It was so refreshing. I am forever thanking people for letting me give them my business and they are forever saying “you’re welcome.” It may not have been a life changing moment, but it certainly was one that made me smile.

    Yeah, this was once in a blue moon kind of moment, huh? I say thanks all the time when I make a purchase and I mean “thanks for your services” for polite purposes but no one EVER says “thank you too for your business”. I really don’t believe people get the idea 99% of the time. Maybe things getting a bit bad economically will brighten bsiness people up.
    Hey, I’ll be back tomorrow. I’m bushed. Need some rest.
