The shift manager seemed pleased with me, she actually gave me a Great Service Fanatic card, which was really nice. I'm starting a little collection of them, and I really love that they go on our record cards. The more I can prove that I'm worth employing, the more likely Disney is to keep me here! So I should probably show you a photo of the lovely lovely costume I wore today. Feel free to laugh. I did.
|I know, right?! So special.|
#1: "Ahhh, I see you're from ______, I've never been there, tell me something interesting about _______" (sometimes I say "tell me a fun fact", I'm really never sure what's going to happen when I open my mouth)
#2: "What's your favorite thing about _________"
In my experience, this gets just about anyone talking a mile a minute. And once the guest starts to interact with me, all of a sudden it doesn't matter that they have to wait ten minutes for a room change, because they spent the whole time telling me the best thing about their hometown. There's a lot of other fun ones too, you get creative when you talk to strangers for a living. Plus, I get to learn something new about somewhere. I've also been getting guests to teach me American geography. It's working out well for me. I've also learned who's on all the American money (bills and coins) but I think I mentioned that already. Another fun application of my new favorite game is when I meet new cultural representatives. For instance today I asked the Norweigans what they missed most or what their favorite thing was about Norway. It was really interesting. I learned some fun facts about Norway. Learning is fun. And now I'm tired from being out in the sun all day. I like today. Today was a good day.
