Do 'little things' worsen your mood?

Today I had a birthday party at pump it up, the staff was unattentive, even though it cost a lot of money to have 20 kids. They did not bring the colorful plates and birthday hats, they forgot the fruit tray, they brought not the pizza I ordered. They did not give my daughter t-shirt as promiced, but made sure to get tip. My daughter is happy, I am not, I cannot sleep and feel tired and sad. So do 'little' things like those bring you down?

  • well those arent little things, you paid for a service that wasnt rendered, I would have been pissed!

  • Yes, that would bother me. You should call the manager today and speak to him or her about the lack of service. It's possible you could get a partial refund; if not, at least it will bring it to the management's attention so they will (hopefully) speak with the employees involved about what is expected during these special occasions. Bottom line is that you did not get what you paid for, and you need to speak with someone about it.

  • That doesn't seem like a little thing to me. I would be frustrated that I did not get what I paid for. I would call them and make sure they remedy what happened.

  • I don't consider those little things. I would either stop payment on my credit/check card or if it's too late I'd go to the manager and get a refund for those items! Unfortunately, you can't undo discourteous behavior!
