For me one of my greatest expectations I put on myself as a parent is to make sure I instil manners. fairness and loyalty in my children so it becomes second nature to be polite and use manner and to invest in relationships that are healthy and are not one-sided.
Don’t get me wrong teaching these important life skills is not easy and not always immediately successful.
When Beth was 2.5 years old I took her to the local market, I chatted with the stall owner while purchasing some make-up with Beth in the pushchair. On arriving home I took off Beth’s coat to find her arm was covered in hair bobbles she had taken from the stall and put on her wrists!
Needless to say I took Beth back to the market to tell the lady what she had done and to give them back and say sorry.
Although when we got there all she kept saying was thank you! so at least that’s something right?
So with manners and loyalty something that to us is imperative, I am going to be honest and lay it out there …… I hate rude people, I hate being excluded and I hate feeling like someone is getting something that I am not allowed and I certainly don’t think I am alone.
To me everyone should be treated equally, with respect and that shouldn’t just be in the home.
So recently when I heard about NatWest and their new methods of recognising loyalty, it really was a refreshing breakthrough for me to hear.
Be gone best offers to new customers
Goodbye to 0% teaser rates for new customers
Shift over free gifts, overdraft and the year’s supply of cake for anyone that has never been a customer …
The Hello/Goodbye campaign from NatWest, finally shows what its like to bring fairness to its customers new and old alike … how?… no more special offers, free gifts, teasers rates or cake … no scratch that the cake aspect may have only ever been in my head.
But what can you say?!
I know what I want to say … well done!
if you would like more information on the campaign from NatWest you can find it on the website
