A year ago I was at the bank waiting for a customer service rep to be available. I felt like everyone was too busy to assist me. I waited forever, and the interaction was brusque and impersonal. I decided to do an experiment and sent a corporate gift basket to my local branch. I made sure to send a large size card prominently displayed in the front with my logo on it. I wanted to impress upon them that this was from me and my company. The only way to do that is with visuals. The next time I came in, I was treated like a visiting celebrity! “Hi Mr. X, how can we help you today?” there were lots of smiles and chatting and the experience was a complete turnaround from my prior experience.

And their expectations get bigger and more ludicrous. My son asked me for a cotton candy machine. (huh?) Where is he gonna keep it? Upstairs in his room on his desk?! I can see my dentist liking this post…
He wants to invite the neighborhood over every afternoon for cotton candy. I nixed that request pretty fast. I suggested Monopoly instead. He just rolled his eyes. I guess I’m not staying current with what the kids nowadays find exciting!
What I have discovered after living for 14 years with children who want presents every Chanukah, is that I can never go wrong with chocolate coins. Kids of all ages love getting that little mesh bag of coins (ok, ok, I admit to sneaking one for myself as well).
