Blogging From A to Z Challenge ~ "S"



Service is something that seems harder and harder to find in this growing world of technology
Service is what you once got when you went to get gas
They would service the car
They would pump your gas
You never got out of the car
They would clean the windows
 Check the fluids
The air in the tires
I sure miss that!

Service was when I went to the bank they knew my name and what I did for a living
They knew my Auntie Em
And knew that the kids where fighting the flu

It was going to the locale market and and Fred the butcher knew how I liked my meat cut and wrapped

Service was someone on the other end of the phone asking me "How can I help you?"
And not some machine telling me to press this button and that button to get to another machine that tells me to push more buttons and it goes on and on
As you continue to push you just wish you could speak to a human voice to get where you need

Service is a greeting with a smile 
That says "I'm glad you are here" 
Because of you I have a job
Thank you!

The clerk that will help you find something and not be irritated because they have to help you and doesn't act like you are an inconvenience to help
The clerk that wants to make sure your experience was a good one and that you found everything you needed and then some
That was happy you came to do business with them

It is the waitress at the restaurant who greets you with a smile
Then sits you with a nice tall glass of water with a menu
That is prompt in taking your order and lets you know the specials without you asking
 That never lets your water or coffee cup get half empty
That checks to make sure everything is alright and to your liking

Services which seems to be lacking in this ever growing world of technology
Replaced with what can I get out of you
Instead of how can I help you and make your experience a good one.

These are just a few of the services that I miss!

What service do you miss that is longer provided?

Brilliant post today for the letter 'S', Bethe. Oh I so agree with everything you have said about Service. We just don't get it any more, and I don't like it! The one that really made me remember was when we used to fill up the car with petrol and, as you said, we had all these things done for us and we didn't even have to leave the car! Happy days! Hope your are enjoying your time with all your lovely and beautiful grandchildren! Keep cool!
