"Be tolerant of those in the service industry..." 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Sunday)

Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst New York.
 and has worked in the ophthalmology
 field of medicine for over 30 years

Be tolerant of those in the service industry

It's amazing how rude people can be...

We frequent Parana's chain of breakfast and salads and quick service during the week where you order at a counter and they call you when your food is done.  The little sweet woman at the front counter repeatedly tells me how rude the customers can be; they are demanding, short tempered and talk to her as if she were their servant.  

There are many jobs that serve the people, even in the medical field we have to put up with rude demanding people all day long... asking such questions such as "how much longer will I have to wait" after it had only been 10 minutes.  Or, even though you don't take my insurance, you should see me anyway for free.  They argue about the waiting room seating, too noisy, too hot or cold...there always seems a reason for people to complain.  

People....look around, nothing is perfect, everyone deserves respect whether they are a service worker or medical workers.  They are giving you their time and effort every day; why not make it easier on them and just go along and get along.  We are here to serve you and will give you a smile if you will be tolerant because we are pushed to the edge every day waiting on you. 

A smile goes a very long way...and can turn an entire day around for workers.  ;-)

I think it's possible to "complain' in a nice way. Instead of moaning about the wait, simply ask in a matter of fact way, "How much longer do you think it will be?" Or how about injecting some humor? "I see you don't take my insurance. It's too bad you're not a free clinic."
