I'm A Nice Guy
I don't know if it's the nicest thing I've ever been told. Recently, however, both my manager and assistant manager told me that I was a nice guy. Man, was I flattered. That's been one of my biggest ambitions since my mid-teens. I just went out of my way at work, time and again, to help customers in a friendly, respectful manner. 'Course, I've been doing that for 15 years, off and on, so it just seems natural now. I never ask anyone if they think I'm a nice, decent fellow. I just show it through my behavior and manners. To me, being this way has its own reward. It doesn't really help me land a better job or to get the girl, but being a nice guy is important enough that I won't bend my values very much to gain personal favour or rewards. I'd rather be myself.
