Being polite and greeting a customer when they come into your store is a great idea. However... as a customer I absolutely hate it when the second I walk in the store you blast me with “HI! HOW YA DOING? ISN’T IT A GREAT DAY!?”. I went into a convenience store this morning, and it was like being set upon by a pack of barking, deliriously happy golden retrievers who think you have raw meat. Every employee at this place is like that, pretty much every time I’ve been there. I just wish they’d crank down the enthusiasm (and volume) a couple hundred notches.
