I'm taking a short break from my education stories to post a link to a really great little film I came across about the power of a compliment and a smile. It's worth taking 16 minutes to watch it.

It's SO TRUE! If someone smiles at you and takes an interest in you, you feel better! A perfect example of that is how I much prefer certain tellers at the bank and the post office. I feel noticable relief when I stand in line and I see I'm going to get to interact with my favorite teller. The ones who smile and know me and interact in a pleasant way make me feel better. I avoid the ones who grumble and frown, though it's always an opportunity for me to make THEM feel better. This film takes the whole thing to a new level.
