Put on a Happy Face

Have you come across people in your day to day experiences that have a wall around them?  I’m talking about receptionists in offices, sales clerks in stores, service people in restaurants and the list goes on.  We all have encountered these people at one time or another.  Or maybe we have even been in those […]
