Helen-The-Realtor Gets 10% Discount For 12 Friends
Helen had a plan.
And she was prepared.
AND EXPECTED to get Wonderful Results.
Well, as I told you in my previous email, it looked like it was going to be a long
wait at the restaurant. But with the ***thank your card strategy*** to the
hostess it took all of 5 min. for us to get the table.
My friend who was standing next to me, didn't see what I was writing, but saw
that I had given the card to the receptionist, and was intensely curious as to
what I had done when we got the table so fast.
Smiling, I told her I would show her later in the evening. When we were seated, I
purposely took the chair closest to the walkway. When the waiter came (we
lucked out and got a good looking guy) we all ordered.
When he returned I made eye contact with him and gave him my order. He gave
me good eye contact back and took me as the one in charge of the table. We all
chose seperate checks, which you could see somewhat bothered him because he
would have to do 12 different totals instead of one.
I slipped out ***a dollar*** from my purse and gave it to him when my friends
were finishing up their orders. I told him thank you. We continued with our
chatting while waiting for our meals. He came right back with our breadsticks
and salad. (Another dollar).
Then he was back again within 5 min. letting us know that our meals were
cooking and that they should be out shortly. Now remember this restaurant was
full, every table was full. He also refilled a few drinks. I was having a lot of fun. I
was visiting with friends I hadn't seen in years, and was getting great service for
us with just a few little tricks I learned from you.
A few minutes later, he walked past again and smiled at me. Just me. I knew then
that the Flirt Tips were working. Our food was done and he brought it out along with a
few other guys. It was piping hot and was delicious. When he was done setting
the food out, I gave him another dollar and thanked him again for his top notch
The evening went great. The girls commented on how attentive he was, all the
while never noticing that I had given him a few dollars during the meal. When
the meal was over, he brought back our tickets...all 12 of them. I paid with my
credit card, so I put it in the pouch along with a $5 bill.
I also decided to write a quick thank you note.
When he brought back our receipts, he had given our table a 10% discount. (I
have no idea what for, but accepted it). I took you advice from another free e-
zine...(the dollar tipping) and thought the evening was a huge success.
I would love to try more of these ideas and give you feedback if you will let me.
Oh, the friend that was so curious as to what I had given the hostess called me
up the next evening and begged me to tell her what I had said to get such fast
service. I told her that it was the thank you card.
She was surprised that was what it was, and that it had worked so well. I told her
that she was there front and center to see it happen before her eyes. So now she
is a believer as well as myself.
You may use this for your testimonials if you would like. Just do not use my last name.
