Me: “I support a team that designs business processes and customizes existing computer systems.”
Man: “Oh.” (Pause, then): “Are you in charge of people?”

Man: “Oh.” (Pause, then): “Well, you should be!” (said with a very sincere tone.)  “The way you treat people yet still get things done, I bet you’d be a very good supervisor.”

Aw, what a sweet compliment.  Thanks sir!  🙂

2. Getting the opportunity to see the powerful positive impact a sincere, hand-written note can have on others.
