Happy Labor Day

Labor Day is a Federal Holiday in America. It’s a time when we celebrate the economic and social contributions of workers and it’s observed on the first Monday in September (September 3 in 2012)!
What does it mean to me? ANOTHER DAY, expect a day OFF!
Of course I appreciate the contributions and achievements of American workers; but I do that EVERY DAY!
I thank the postman when I see him. I appreciate the Waste Collection Guys and yes, I tell them so when I catch the truck in the neighborhood. When I go to a drive thru at the restaurant or to the teller at the bank, a clerk at the mall or a salesperson at my favorite store, I let them know I do know take their service for granted.
Try it…you’d be surprised at the wonderful service you get! People want to be appreciated…all of us but all too often all we hear are complaints. My salad was wilty, my cola was flat. The line was long and you were on the phone, the mail was late. Get over yourself! Be thankful and let those who serve you know you appreciate their service not just on LABOR DAY, but every day!
And oh yeah, for old Southern gals like me…it’s now time (after Labor Day) to stop wearing white shoes and NEVAH seersucker after Labor Day!
