You know the routine: something goes wrong with your computer, your phone system, or your electric pencil sharpener, and the first thing you do is call IT.
But these hardworking denizens of your company’s basement rarely ever get a call when things are just fine and working smoothly the other 99% of the time. So today we want to right that wrong and give your friendly local IT colleague a call or email just to say, “Nothing’s wrong – and I just wanted to say thanks for that!”
If you don’t have an IT person, consider thanking someone else who doesn’t get thanked much – like your landlord or building manager. Don’t forget to mention that you’re only calling to thank them for doing such a great job that you don’t need to call them – oh the irony!
