Overall, I’m fairly confident in my abilities and don’t usually feel like a big loser but I hate disappointing people, hate them feeling like I’ve let them down. Yet now that I’m thinking about it – this job regularly lands me in that position. It might be someone who had furniture to donate and didn’t know about us or someone needing to buy something and paying full price when Jubilee Furniture had a less expensive option for a better quality piece.
Thankfully, before I get myself too tied up in knots – I realize I’ll never be able to communicate to everyone who might want to donate or shop about the store (not that I won’t continue to improve at getting our message out) – and I take a deep breath, square my shoulders and mentally prepare my response – “I’m so sorry you didn’t realize we were open on the 30th and 31st! Next time I’ll personally hand-deliver the engraved invitation to you.” Maybe no? *smile*
The worst part is there’s so much amazing furniture for purchase this week! Lots for unaware customers to get angry over! Let’s take a peek:
So, in case you’ve read this far and are still unclear on whether Jubilee Furniture will be open today and tomorrow allow me to clarify. Hot chocolate. Starlight. Orange – both the color and the fruit.
Dear reader, I would never insult your intelligence!
Wishing you an amazing and marvelous, growing and learning 2012!
