Million Dollar Smile!!!!

This morning went to the Shell Gas Station (Assuming people from US might read my blog He..He..) on the Tambaram - Velacherry Road to fill some petrol for my bike.

I really like the way the poeple at Shell serve the customers - first they salute the customers, then politely fill the petrol and finally wishing us a happy journey. Moreover, to my knowledge, they are the only gas station in Chennai who provide bills for the amount paid/filled.

As usual the young man wished me and filled the tank for the amount, I had asked him. When I was about to leave, I told him that their service is very good.

I never thought such few words of appreciation would make him so excited. He said "Thank you.. Thank you.. Thank you.." with a lovely cute smile on his face. I really dont know the english words to explain his smile.

No money could get such a sweet smile and excitement. This is what I feel is the Moment of Pride. He was so happy that his service had made a customer happy.

After all this is what most of us expect from our customer na..

Accepted. Let me try to avoid using the word "na" frequently [;)]

About the Shell:
Nanba it might appear artificial - but for sure this is a welcome change. Be frank, have you ever had such friendly treatment in any other bunks near Tambaram? (I dont know about the bunks in the City.)
