Today we went to get my Military ID updated. We were not here when it expired on my birthday and didn't want to forget it.
Found out that instead of the Air Force doing it, now it's done at the "Visitors" Station at the entrance before you go in the gate where my husband works. I don't know who these people are that are hired there, but they are obviously VERY unhappy people. I want to just shake people like that and say "HEY! YOU HAVE A JOB" A smile and being curteous goes a long long way. And when you see what is going on in Haiti today, come on people, you've got this pretty good!
First there is NO one waiting in there. Not one single person.. but I'm told to push the little button that says I need a new ID card. I do as told which I feel ridiculous doing since I'm alone in there! And here comes Ms ATTITUDE..
Now I don't even want to waste my finger energy describing how she acted, but before we left she was tripping over herself to be helpful :) I think the tide turned when she smarted off as I explained how the old card had and error on it. I turned to my husband and said "Do you want to just come another day because there is a MAJOR ATTITUDE behind this counter"~He said "Yes, let's go".. we got it in a hurry with lots of gushing from Ms Attitude.
Is it harder to smile and be pleasant then snarl and be unpleasant?
