Anyone else just love that *special* compliment?

9 replies 2 views Edited May 2, 2007
May 5th will mark my 1 year "anniverary" of working at Hollywood Video and I've had some good times and bad but a run-in with one of the customers tonight made my day, and quite possibly my entire year here. He's a regular and comes in all the time, jokes with us, etc and I always recommend him movies. The last time he stopped in I told him to rent City of God and told him it would not disappoint and he came back last night talking about how great it is. He then said;

 "Ryan, I swear everytime you recommend me a movie they are always great. I cannot think of one movie you've told me to get that I didnt like. You have by far the best taste in anyone I've ever known. Your honestly a really great kid. Thanks alot"

And at first It didnt really hit me, but after ahwile I got to thinking how great of a comment it is ya know? I mean, here it is, a stupid job, a recommended movie, but that deep of a comment. I thought about it the whole drive home and still am thinking about it now. Maybe its because he's closer with some of the other co-workers that I feel this good, but it just put me in a fantastic mood

Have any of you ever had a comment that made you feel this way?

That's just simply embarassing, in my opinion. I could see that happening at a movie theater a lot, actually. I'm sure I was that person a few times, unfortunately. Shows how much they use their brains...
