Jerry Seinfeld shows up to rent a car, but the company has no cars. See how he reacts. Get ready to laugh!

 

Many of you know that prior to starting my consulting practice I was the global head of consumer affairs for Thrifty Rent-A-Car System. The scene in this Jerry Seinfeld episode is one that plays out in real life every single day in car rental locations throughout the world. Jerry says what many of think, but don’t dare to say in the wake of the dreaded “over-sell” situation. Watch, laugh, and learn.

I actually feature this clip in my full-day customer service workshops. It gets hilarious laughter for sure, but after the clip we discuss how the waitress could have handled this customer better.

Watch the video, paying careful attention to the waitress. Note your first impression as she approaches Jack’s table, her facial expression, attitude, etc. Next, flip the script. What might she have done differently to have the situation end MUCH differently?

Enjoy!

The lesson here, of course, is to be flexible and friendly. These two attributes will take you a long way with customers, even the most difficult of customers.
