Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I agree with all of the above. We do need to commend the good service we receive. But also, think about the people
"behind the scene". I have worked as a private housekeeper for 8 yrs. & as a hotel housekeeper. I have recieved
thank you's from my private clients, always appreciated. But from the hotel guests? Not very often. A word to
Management is also appreciated. A note also goes into our file. Can you tell there was a crazy party in your room the
night before? It's all because of the housekeeper. She/he is the 1 that cleaned & made it a welcome place to stop after a long drive. Sorry for the rant but when you have cleaned up after people that just don't care & are proud of
your work a "Thank you" goes a long way.
A couple of years ago my husband and I were in a bad accident at 6:30AM. A passing motorist stopped to help us out. He stayed there until the police came and ambulance came. He told us that he was a college student working the night shift and he had just gotten off work. My husband and I were very impressed with this young man and wrote a letter to his company's HQ. The company wrote us back and told us how pleased they were that his employee had helped us and that they had given him a bonus of $500.
I always talk to the manager and let them know how pleasant the worker was!

One time I was on a flight (major airline) that stopped in St. Louis for a layover and then proceed to San Diego. A group of about 15 - 20 young men on their way to boot camp at the naval station in San Diego joined the flight. They stunk (it was summer), rowdy, ill-behaved, lighting up on board on the ground, etc. It was an absolute disaster. The cabin crew were real pros. They rearranged (with everyone's approval) the cabin so the youngsters were in the back with one crew member taking of them and the rest free to treat the rest of us normally. Wonderful.
I wrote complementing the crew for a wonderful job. Unfortunately, I got a CYA letter saying they had to carry recruits. I did take the time to write again because that crew saved what could have been several hours of misery into a normal flight. How sad that they got so few complimentary letters that they did not recognize it for what it was.

Good idea....I will try to be more mindful of this. Thanks..
It is a blessing, to be a blessing !
