Getting Ahead 

By Barbara Fields 

The surest way of getting ahead is to work, and work, and work hard. Always stick to your job. Be on time. Be friendly to all customers. Be quick, efficient and easy to get along with. Never gripe over extra work your manager asks you to do. Don’t ever say, “Let someone else do it,” or “I can’t”. Always stay busy and never loaf or try to kill time. When you have finished serving a customer say, “Thank you, come again”. Just follow a few of these rules and you will find yourself getting a promotion.
