It's been a while since my last PSA, so I thought I would do my part to make the world a happier place....
If you appreciate what someone has done for you (even if it is their job), let others know.
You might be saying to yourself, LDO?!?
But you would be surprised at how few people take the time out to put in a good word for their fellow man.
Example #2: When was the last time you told a teacher / professor you appreciated what they did? I was always a straight A student, but I don't think I ever said anything more than "thanks" at the end of the year (except for maybe my thesis advisor). And I certainly never let their department heads or anyone higher up know. It's just one of those things you don't think about. The last two years, G's teachers went (a little) out of their way to help G get more acclimated. So Mrs. Fly wrote them a lengthy thank you email AND CC:ED the PRINCIPAL OF THE SCHOOL. Apparently, no one ever does this, so the teachers at the school love us. Because people always bitch to the teachers and higher-ups about how their mentally and behaviorally challenged kid isn't getting As, but they never thank people and let the higher-ups know when someone's doing a great job. It must be that lost passage in the bible - "do unto others... unless it inconveniences you."
Anyway, if you've had someone who has been great to you, take a few moments out of your day and let people know. Just a few ways you can be good to your fellow man.
