All human beings like being treated well. So often in our modern world people treat others with discourtesy, disrespect and downright rudeness. Being treated well gives you a real boost and makes you feel good.
week I made a long train trip and booked using a special internet offer
code so I got a first class ticket at a bargain price. As a result the service I
received was superb.
I had never before experienced first class! In your
seat you had complimentary drinks offered and
complimentary food served all day. This is not the way to take a trip if
you are on a diet! It makes you feel good to be pampered and treated
well. The seats are wider than those in ordinary carriages and also
recline. I have been on long train journeys which can be a nightmare
you spend the trip longing for the agony to be over.
The trade off we have to
understand is that good service costs. If we feel virtuous about getting
the best possible deal and paying the lowest possible price for everything then we cannot
expect the overworked staff, inevitably be on minimum wage, to
offer the best customer service. Like all of life we get what we pay
for. You cannot expect a stranger to pamper you for free!
I find it challenging to wonder if I always treat
people I meet in the best way that I can? Especially when I am tired at
the end of a long day I know that I am not as nice to others as I want
them to be towards me.
