“Can I Help You?”
These four words are the most important you’ll say in a day at work.
Disabled customers might come to your counter to ask advice and if they do PLEASE don’t look the other way hoping they will go away,
ask them “can I help you”.
Blind people can’t read body language so won’t know if you just smile at them but say nothing;
Deaf people can’t hear what you are saying but often lip-read so you need to look them full in the face;
People with mobility scooters or using walking aids will not be able to pick things from a shelf so would welcome an extra pair of hands.
There, but for the grace of God, go I.
