Happy Employee Appreciation Day everyone!

Now, I’m not an employee, nor do I have any, but I interact with employees every day, and I worked in retail long enough to know that it sucks. So if you’re working today, know you are appreciated and ignore the rest of this blog.

If you’re off or you don’t work or you don’t work for anyone but yourself, make the effort to show how much you appreciate the people who do in whatever way you can. Tip well. Find a manager and talk about how amazing the person helping you check out was. Get the name of anyone and everyone who helps you today and use them when you take the five minutes to fill out the surveys that come with the receipts. Incidentally, you get free stuff for doing that, so everyone wins.

Go out of your way to be nice today. They deserve it.
