I cannot stress enough its importance, that is how important it is for me. I had this experience when I was still in the Call Center and it really drove me crazy for a second. I did someone a favor (closed the deal for him) and he did not even bother to say “thank you” voluntarily? Ha! I was waiting for it and initiated that he should say “thank you” and yeah he said “thanks”. A lame kind of “thanks” but anyways, it happened. Forgiven not forgotten.
It is just that we should not let someone do something good for us and make them feel like it is a wasted effort or that we do not appreciate a single fvck they are giving. We should be more civilized in that manner. Give it a try. It does not hurt much.
Is it not good to have someone help us or cheer us up and then thank them for that? I guess they would be happy too. There is no greater feeling than the feeling of being appreciated. You know that. Or at least second best. Or third. I do not care actually but you get the point right? I know you are wise. Thank you for being wise. And for reading.
