We were all taught to say “please” and “thank you”. Of course, when we completed a sale we said a sincere “Thank You”….and a firm hand shake. It was the way we did business.
That way of doing business still applies today and even where a “Thank You” is extended to those that perform a service. The cashier at the checkout….the grocery bagger….the service provider….they all get a “Thank You”.
Most of the times they don’t expect any response….it’s a routine job….yet when we have acknowledge their work….they have always been appreciative.
It is a nice way to make a connection between people….saying “Thank You”.
