While walking into the gym one morning with my husband, the girl behind the counter greeted me by name. As we walked away from the counter Mike teasingly said, “She knows your name, huh? Aren’t you special?”
Honest truth: I did feel special.
My gym had a contest and they asked us to vote for the friendliest clerk.
More honest truth: At the time none of them were overly friendly.
However, there was one gal that blew away her competitors by a landslide. She was ahead of the pack and competing for the prize of a $50 gift certificate. And who, you wonder? You guessed it, the girl who knew everyone’s name.
And if you are wondering if I voted, I did. I voted for her too.
Never underestimate the power of a name.
