Two weeks ago we treated our friends to an evening of juicy BBQ at a local restaurant. We had a great conversation as I used tips from the Conversation Success System

As I swallowed the last bite of BBQ beef, I decided to reward our waitress, Debbie, in a special way.

I waved her over and said, "When you get a chance, could you send the manager over?"

Concern flashed across her eyes.

"Sure thing she said."

Two minutes later the heavy set manager with a mustache sauntered over.

He had that look of "O brother what will these people complain about."

I glanced at his name tag and said, "Steve, thanks for coming over. Wanted to let you know that we enjoyed the dinner, Debbie (waitress) did a fantastic job, and we plan to be back."

He paused and a shocked look momently swept his face.

"Thank you sir! I will let Debbie know."

After some more small talk, he left much happier than when he came.

Look for ways that you can express appreciation, even behind their backs.

Three results happened because I used this tip:

#1: Pleasantly surprised both the waitress and manager…since almost no one does what I said.

#2: Spread some joy to both

#3: Manger gave me a free bottle of BBQ sauce (was not expecting it, but a nice bonus.

Try this and let me know how it works.
