I like it when people are funny and irreverent. Mind you, I'm not going to start cracking jokes at a funeral, but I have no use for stuffy formality.
We have a new volunteer at my office. I didn't really know what his skills were, and he wasn't sure what he wanted to do, but we chatted and I knew he would be a good addition to my office because he has a great sense of humor. As it turns out, he has mad IT skills and is a fast learner. He said he already feels like he's a part of the crew, and that has made him really dive in and do great work.
I especially love unexpected humor. Like this e-mail that I got from my cell phone carrier, when I was inquiring about why the new phone I want is available for new customers and not current ones.
So, we had a sudden run on the Nexus and ended up with alarmingly low
stock. Meanwhile we had just sent a mailer out to our prospects
offering it, and everybody was biting their nails over whether or not we
would have enough to fill the orders...so we snatched it down from the
member services site in hopes we would not sell out too quickly.
But I still have some. And you can have one if you want it.
Success! That's another thing I like: getting what I want. That is another post altogether. What have you been wanting lately?
