Maybe Alot Of the Problems..
happen because so many people have a failure in their imagination department.
Like the driver who passes on a hill in a double yellow striped no passing zone. Their imagination just failed to imagine that some other driver might be coming over that hill in the other lane. This is exhibited by those who can't see what is wrong with scaring people on stairs.
"What? What could happen?"= no imagination.
"You are now fired, done here, don't come back."
"Imagine that you were me, You're the boss, owner ,and you need some people to work for you, work with you. You don't even imagine what that would be like? You will have to be doing the thinking for us both, this saves repitition of thinking.
The clock is at 6:59, we open at 7:00, it's the busiest night of the year, we already have the first 3 tours sold, tickets in their hand, I just quickly checked everyone, they all seem to know what to do....As I have the big front door unlocked, my young employee steps between us and wants to engage me in conversation about some TV show from last night?
I was so frustrated and pist at him!
Some Customers just have to waste
Their time, possible fun experiences, themselves.
Last night two yard haunters were here who have been to a couple of Transworlds and took a bus ride to see The Darkness. They said there were some people on that bus who were consuming incredible amounts of alcohol,.....maybe someone else paid their way? They really didn't want to be there?
I was minorly amazed at this. spending such time and money to just get wasted, they could have done this at home, if they had one?
Many years ago as a large group left my kitchen I discover the antique kitchen sink there is almost full of fresh, reddish PUKE!? (Lucky it was a single-basin) Unlucky for me at that time the sink was still just a prop, a prop Not hooked up to any plumbing!!??
What Now!? Another group is due into the kitchen in a minute or so!
I grabbed a scrap of cardboard, a Magic marker and wrote "Free Puke! Take Some" Fortunately it didn't reek.
"Look at that, it almost looks "real". I heard some customers remark.
By asking them to "Take some" worked it's reverse-psychology magic, nobody touched it.
