Into the cart went to the box. Yes! It was just the one I wanted. A couple more things in the cart, and off to check out we went.
It was really quiet for Monday night, so we didn't even have to wait in line. The cashier looked in the cart and saw the box. Her eyes lit up. She looked up and asked, "Can you wait on this?"
Huh? But it's my birthday! ... Today! ... I want my present!
Well, the cashier went on to explain, "If you could wait until Thursday, this will be $25 off." Oh, now I get it. Hey, 25 bucks is worth waiting for. And, she was waiting until Thursday to get one for herself.
So, here's what I want to remark on. The Costco cashier didn't have to say anything. She could have let us buy it for the regular price, and we still would've been happy. Instead, she let us know that it was going to be going on sale. She didn't have to do that.
Now, this is a small thing. After all, it's only $25. However, it was a nice thing for her to do. Here's where the remarkable part comes in. I've just mentioned Costco in this blog post several times, and in a positive way.
I've shopped at Costco for many years. Today, for the first time, I am remarking on them, because one of their employees did something remarkable.
It doesn't take much to get people talking. What remarkable thing can you do to get people talking about you? Share your ideas...
