Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Call The Boss


--by caroline.s.king, posted Nov 14, 2013
I had a  conversation with my cell phone company yesterday. 
 
The person I spoke to was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and was able to answer all of my questions about various plans. At first, I just thought, 'Good! They know how to do their job.' But then I though about it some more and today I called his boss.  
 
At first I think the woman was expecting me to complain but I said I just wanted to tell her how pleased I was with the quality of the service I received. The relieved manager told me no one ever calls to say they have done a good job, so I was glad I did!

It makes me happy just thinking about how thrilled that person would have been to have received your comments. And you never know, it might have been the only bright moment of his day. Thanks for sharing.

Finally i got a lady, who made sure she resolved my problem, after it we were done i asked her to put me through with her supervisor and let her know the awesome customer service representative she is.
