Inspired by Parking Lot Attendant
On Ellen Avenue in Niagara Falls Canada
By David Smith July 17, 2009
He flicks up his umbrella; He puts on an enthusiastic smile.
He waves the cars in to his lot for a while.
It’s not the lot that gets the attention.
It is the man with finesse who gets honourable mention.
The genuine smile; as he opens his hands.
People the value; the business he understands.
Secrets to success; to appreciate the common man.
Let others feel important; as they park and take their stand.
Learn from the big boys and cultivate what works.
Through constant practice we eliminate the quirks.
When the tourists pull in, it’s more than the falls that’s at play.
It is people, it is emotion, it is excitement this day.
