“Thanks” from the jet-blue sky.
At Portofino Sun Center today getting ready for a trip to Hawaii (!) — I chatted amiably with my new aesthetician, Ali Pinkering.
She’s good friends with a flight attendant for Jet Blue, who (like me) is down with the flu.
Ali and I talked about how her friend underwent months of training, but was still surprised at how abusive passengers can be —
how they don’t appreciate a flight attendant is there to save your life.
“The nicest thing happened, though,” Ali ventured. “My friend’s cousin took a flight recently, and afterwards, texted my friend
to say “Thank You for what you do.”
The cousin never really appreciated what a tough job it is … until her family member joined the ranks.
“That text made a huge difference,” Ali said. “Now when my friend has a rough day, she thinks of that.”
I told Ali about my blog and how I firmly believe a well-placed ‘thank you’ makes an impact.
Share your appreciation. By text or letter — it does make a difference.
Ask Ali’s friend. And next time, while you’re at it, smile at your stewardess too.
