A year ago yesterday, I decided to celebrate my work anniversary by taking myself to dinner at TGIFriday’s right after work.  I got there befodre 5 PM and it was not crowded.  Seated quickly, I sat and watched servers chatting with each other, talking to the manager, and waiting on the few other customers that were there, without a menu and without even a glass of water.  After about 10 minutes,  I asked a passing server who’s table this was and was told that s/he would be with me shortly.  At the 20 minute point, I got up and left without a word.  Subsequently I shared my experience online and was surprised to get an email from TGIFriday’s management asking me to give them another chance and sending me a coupon for a free meal.  I didn’t make my way back until yesterday evening because I was not inclined to give it another shot.  But the coupon was going to expire, so I took a chance.  The server was attentive, quick, and very friendly – and that made for a pleasant experience that wiped out the sour tastes the previous visit had left.  That one server made a huge difference and I’ll probably start patronizing the place again.




Moral of the story:  if you are going to do a job that involves customer service, then DO it and do it without resentment or lollygagging.   You may only get once chance to keep or lose a customer.
