This Is How You Help Someone Turn A Bad Day Into A Good Day
Friday, November 19th is "Have a Bad Day" Day and it was created for those that work in the customer service field. If you are like my daughters and work the register at Price Chopper or Aldis, before the customer would leave, you would tell them to "have a good day", even if they didn't earn it.
