How quickly we forget. Business owners who expect to be treated as valued customers when spending their hard earned dollars are often the biggest offenders when it comes to treating their own customers with gratitude and respect. Their cashiers act bored and detached; customer service representatives are abrupt; ads are often deceptive; websites are difficult to navigate and money is never refunded cheerfully.
