Congratulations! You did a good day’s work when you hired Alexis.
I don’t know Alexis personally, but I know she is a fine young lady. She took our order at lunchtime today when things were quite busy. After we paid and secured a table, poured our drinks, and were waiting for our order, she came to find me to tell me that she charged me too much. I had ordered a Zax snack and she had charged me for a Big Zax snack. She needed to refund my money.
She was so polite as she asked me to step over to the cash register. She calmly explained to the people next in line that she needed to help a previous customer. When she asked another cashier for clarification about the process, they were both calm and collected. When her supervisor, or whoever had the code to make such a correction came over, all employees were still unruffled.
So, I, a customer who never would have known there was an error, was spellbound as this 16-year-old lady realized she had made a mistake and went about correcting it with poise. Your books now balance with your inventory, your business’s bank balance is $1.50 lower than it would have been, but we are all richer.
There is hope for the future; for the future of our country, of your business, and for Alexis. Certainly for Alexis.
