It's a simple thing, and since I work in a boutique I tend to say similar things to customers: "How are you today?" But that simple turn of phrase, by changing a few words around, made it into an entirely different question that, well, made my day. "Did you have a good day today?" It took our customer-cashier banter to another level, like a conversation between friends or mother and daughter. Nothing more than a polite exchange, it's true, but even so it's nice to be asked.
And you know what? Because of that, I did have a good day. Thank you very much. :)
