I called our local Dollar Tree today and guess what! The box of mermaids arrived at the store today as promised. I plan to write the company a very nice letter as soon as I get my hands on them (I wasn’t able to pick them up today). Everyone that I have spoken to at Dollar Tree has been extremely nice and accommodating. I think it’s important that when you experience good customer service that you let the people know about it. One thing that I’ve learned in healthcare is that good things seem to go unnoticed and maybe never acknowledged. It only takes one bad thing to happen and it seems like the whole world knows about it. Take time to appreciate good customer service. You’ll make someone else feel better and brighten their day.
Speaking of Mermaids….the birthday plans are ON! Alise’s party is two weeks from this Saturday. I think I’ve gotten just about everything I need for the goody bags (I like to do boy and girl goody bags with different things for each). I’ve emailed Cyndi about getting together to discuss Alise’s cake. I’m waiting for the invitations to come in from All My Love. The only thing Alise won’t be having at her birthday party is a piñata. That’s all the child has talked about is having a pull-string Mermaid piñata at her party, but when I called the Museum and asked if we could bring one, I was told no. I just knew the response would send Alise into a meltdown, but she seemed to be okay with it. This just may be the easiest birthday party yet! As it should be! After all, we’re leaving for Disney three weeks later!
Chocolate cake, here I come!!
