Frequent travel on American Airlines over the past few years has given me a new perspective on air travel in general. I could not help but notice how hard they have worked on their rather unique concept of customer service, often resulting in an exquisite travel experience. A co-worker and I who frequently traveled together often recited a motto I think they should adopt. I doubt they will give it any consideration, but I did decide to have some new stickers printed with it…. : )
Ever think about how unsanitary the TV remote control in hotels rooms might be? Sure just about anything else in the room is probably infectious also, but TV remotes are an example I often think about. I decided to start bringing my own remote control a while back and it has turned out to be pretty useful. Not only do you feel like you may be avoiding the plague, but sometimes you can also get to TV controls that are disabled on the hotel provided remote. Another advantage is being able to change the channel or volume if the buttons are worn out on the remote in the room. The RCA R55NA (pictured above) is small, inexpensive, easy to program, and works well for me.
At work we now have pipe cleaners in all of the conference rooms. The idea is that while using your hands to fiddle around with something, you will pay better attention in meetings. Oddly enough it seems to work.
Don’t know why, but I was inspired today to create a pipe-cleaner version of a pink, fluffy, unicorn, dancing on a rainbow.
