@strnglibrarian mentioned on Twitter that she was cooking up some department fun at MarylandAskUsNow! She wants to have crazy hat day and karaoke night. She invited the Twitterverse to call her the Queen of Positive Vibes and Silly Fun. So I did. And she is. Her attitude is infectious and comes across not only on her blog, her Tweets but in the customer service and leadership she provides at Maryland AskUsNow!
So the gauntlet has been thrown down. Let’s make October 21st officially Silly Hat Day. Take a picture of yourself in a silly hat and post it to Twitter and tag it #sillyhatday. Why? Well, why not? More importantly let this fun and a bit of play infect your work that day. Let it spill over into your customer service with the public. Sometimes being a little be unexpected is just what is needed. It helps to shake up the status quo, helps put a smile on your face which in turn can be just what the customer needs (be it an internal or external customer) to have a bright spot in their day.
So show your creativity – make your own or buy a silly hat, wear it on 10/21, take a picture and post it on Twitter or Flickr or other social web sites. Don’t forget to tag it #sillyhatday. Have fun and hats off to you!
