But should the paying customer of the business that is earning you a living really have to know your pissed off with your self, your life or your job.
At the end of the day your just serving him a drink he's paid for with his hard earned cash. He has just given you (the business) money and a
"smile" wouldn't go a miss.
If the bar has no customers you have no job, so you job is to keep the customers happy, content and coming back. A simple Smile can do just that.
Of course your Human and so is he and you could call it "fake" and a "front" but in reality it's just the "face of the business". If as a
paying customer you have a choice between buying your beer from a smiling bar tender, even if that Smile isn't always "real" or buying your beer
off a guy who hates his job or is having woman troubles at home and sits with a face on his full shift.
I think some people have a bit too much "self importance" and like a sense of "entitlement". These customers are paying your wages, these guys are
you and your bosses life blood and all you have to do to keep it going is Smile, a small price in my opinion.
You have an opportunity to cheer up someone's day, regardless of # your feeling and if you just think "# him I'm the depressed one" then so be it
but just giving someone a smile and wishing them a nice day can be enough to lift someone's mood, just enough that they don't tip over the edge.
The "human" part of it all works both ways... like when someone says "how are you today"... why not care how they really are, like your being paid
to be there, paid by them (the customer) and as a human being why does it have to be a hollow question, why can't you really care how they feel and
try and help in anyway you can. The same works both ways for employee and customer but maybe if you Smile first and then if they ask how you really
are you could tell them you've had better days and air it out.
I hope this doesn't appear like a dig at you but a Smile is small price to pay to brighten up someone's day...
"why should I" is likely the answer though...
I don't see it as being a robot, I see it as being normal lol why bring all your # with you to work, it helps no one, not even your self.
I support the notion that smiling helps and not going "I'm having a # day, I hate my job and have nowt going for me" will help everyone. At the end
of the day it's your fault, it your problem so you sort it out
Why put your problems onto everyone else.
