    what dyou say on 1st meeting a prospective customer?


    if its a male i tend to say "awrite Chief "

    its a real winner/i knew a lad who said it yrs ago and it always got me smiling so i use it now,works well


    other line i often hear in kebab shops is "hello boss " which is quite like if it has a smile with it

    but when i came across the kebab "hello boss" man offduty in a nearby offlicence i said hi to him ,hoping to hear the hello boss line but he totally blanked me and looked at me like i was a sh///t street beggar !

    Its a nice area around here so I usually use the name of the person, but I can't stand using Mr ______. Even if they only give me their second name, I quickly get it to a first name basis. If someone doesnt like that, they can go elsewhere. Only exception is very old folk. I sometimes call them sir. Say the sir quickly, and make the r short, and it doesn't sound **** kissy.

    Yep
    Yep that's pretty much it. Gives a tone of respect without making them feel too superior.

    I also do the yes sir, hello dear how are you hun?

    Do remember that this is a game for the older crew here, I personally am early 40s ish......

    I had a 20 year old scrawny lad working for me that used to try to mimic me when talking to customers, to see this boy calling 80 year old women sweetheart, darling etc was just outright creepy.

    You should be respectful, you go to a restaurant or a garage for a service etc you expect to hear 'yes sir' so why shouldn't your customers?
