Have you ever read the L.L. Bean Credo?  Boy do they understand the meaning of service!"A customer is the most important person in this office ~ in person or by mail.A customer is not dependent on us, we are dependent on him.A customer is not an interruption to our work; he is the purpose of it.  We are not doing a favor by serving him; he is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so...."We could all learn something from L.L.
