And mean it. REALLY say "Thank You", not "Thanks", not "Cheers", not "Ta", not even "thank you." Say Thank You.
Say it to all the people out there who do all the small shitty jobs that no one wants to do , say it to the bag packers and the cashiers, say it to the street sweepers and the cleaners, say it to the trainees at any shop where they make them wear a badge that actually says TRANIEE on it, say it to the receptionists in your office building, say it to the mail room guy, say it to the newspaper vendor and the coffee shop server, say it to the person who drives your bus. And for Gods sake, say it to the community support police officers, and everyone else who deals with so many arseholes every day that a simple Thank You can change there whole world.

I'll second this. It can really make somes day to know their work is appreciated. I've even said 'Thank You' to the cash machine a couple of times, I'm that polite. Or mental. Same difference.

And technicians. And security guards.

Have you ever tried randomly offering to buy the person behind you in the queue a cup of coffee in the canteen or whatever? It makes people smile happy.gif

I like this. Wise words YDMF.

Also, if you walk down the street with a big smile on your face and if you make eye contact, give the person a 'hello' nod. People do smile back. If I see someone smiling on the street it makes me somewhat happy inside.

Say it to the people that run the toll booths on the highway, the lunch ladies in your cafeteria, oh, and the kid that had your math text book before you and put all the right answers in it!

I had to remember that not everyone does this naturally! I suppose it comes from living in a village where you know everyone by surname (if not by forename) and so you stop and have a chat if you see anyone.
Working as a waitress makes you say Thankyou to everyone all the time, anyway. I had to go buy some washing-up gloves one day when I was still at work- so I went to the Superdrug, found them, put them onto the counter and said "There you go, rubber gloves. Thankyou".
It may seem completely stupid, but when you are used to putting things down, telling people what they are as you do so, and immdiately say thankyou afterwards, it is difficult not to when you aren't at work.
When you get a proper, heartfelt thankyou though, nothing beats it.

Wow, that sucks. Vans is like 5 min. from my house on skateboard, so I go whenever I get the chance, and the dude that gives me and my friends free sessions is working.
