I almost am of the mind that this thread will be off-topic, however, since it involves complimenting a federal government employee I figured that qualified as "madness."

Anyway, I recently had some extended dealings with the U.S. government and was delighted at the friendly efficiency and administrative thoroughness of the person with whom I was in contact and was wondering if anyone knows if there is some way to - easily - submit a compliment or praise to whatever authority is responsible for receiving it (is it their agency supervisor, agency I-G, the Merit Systems Review Board, someone else?)?

I don't think I've ever complimented anyone's employee of any type but I figured, since I verbally sh*# on the US-G enough, I should try to balance it out a little.

Q: How do you compliment a US-G employee?
A: Clarified butter, an egg yolk, a shallot, and a little tarragon vinegar. Delicious!

Whatever agency they work for surely has a feedback email box. Or, you could just ask that employee for their supervisors name. You can always send a letter to the Governor, or the President, or whoever is the big daddy boss over the agency they work for.

The government processes all that feedback pretty efficiently. It might take a month, but eventually an award will be given to the employee for your compliment.

Thanks for the suggestion, however, the agency does not have a feedback email and writing the President of the United States to acknowledge some act of efficiency by a low-level civil servant seems a little dramatic.

Actually, an amusing aside, the agency in question has an easy to locate email address for filing complaints, but they note "FOR COMPLAINTS ONLY."

I may just send it there anyway.

You just made the beer come out my nose! Ouch and Thanks! Funniest thing I've seen in a while!

To OP, if your contact was via phone, you may be able to call back the number and ask to speak to a supervisor. Perhaps some parts of the government work that way??

Ya, the complaint one will probably work.

I don't know how it works at the Federal Level, but at the State Level a letter to the Governor will get processed and routed to the appropriate agency, so it wouldn't be overkill, it would just end up at the right place eventually anyway.
