Thanksgiving is tomorrow and a big part of the celebration is not only spending time with friends and family but also reflecting on what we have to be thankful for. Here’s a little list of what we as process servers are thankful for:
We’re thankful for when clients include extra information in their service request.
Have an alternate address? Know the hours the subject works? Have a picture? All of this information is like gold, and we act accordingly when our clients give us these details. More details means quicker service. A win-win for everybody!
We’re thankful for people who accept service graciously.
We know – this isn’t an easy one. Most of the time the information we are giving people isn’t always welcome news. But really, we’re just trying to let you know about a situation so you can take care of it. We don’t expect a smile and a thank you, but for those of you who have done this we really appreciate it. It can be a very pleasant surprise and can make the day of a process server.
We’re thankful for having a job, especially one that we really like.
Many people today are out of work and we all are grateful to have a job we like with the freedom it allows. Most people who are process servers truly enjoy their jobs. No, no we don’t like giving bad news. What we do like is protecting due process rights while being able to create our own hours, preferably with the windows down and our favorite music playing in between stops.
We’re thankful for when three residential services in a row are home and served.
We don’t mind returning to an address to complete a service. It’s all part of the job. But it’s so nice when not two, but THREE services are completed in a row at different residential addresses. Not extremely rare, but always a nice feeling.
This list is the tip of the iceberg. Feel free to let us know what you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving.
Wishing you all a VERY happy Thanksgiving!
