Mike and Fran-
I agree. I hate people like that. For as long as i worked with the public i never did that. Even if i'm a customer i dont do that. And everytime i've trained someone i trained them to do the same. Smile, say hello, talk. It's not that bloody hard. Even on a bad day, its not like the worlds going to end if you smile at your customer. Most likely, it will make your day better. Drives me nuts. I smile at everyone (and i mean EVERYONE), always say hello, and help people if they need it. One day a lady dropped her bag in the parking lot of a local grocer and this kid that worked there just looked at her, though he was only like three feet from her, and walked away. I was on the other side of the drive through and walked over to help her. She was so stunned by it that she kept looking at me weird like she was expecting me to mug her or something. I dont blame her, with the way the world is now i would have been suspicious too, but you know its pretty bad when you cant trust people that are helping you out. Made me angry that the kid that actually worked there walked away as fast as he could though. Totally rude. I vote to ban the rude people in room 101 with you.
And i have to agree with Bighuey as well. I know a few bosses that would be perfect for banning...
