To hear what they AREN’T asking.

“Can you make a copy of this for me?”

I’m going to be honest with you.  I have *NEVER* checked my air filter to see how it was doing.  You know who has?  The guys at Jiffy Lube.

But I went into Jiffy Lube for an oil change, because it’d been 3,000 miles, right?

It’s easy to say “Oh, here they go with the other stuff they want to sell me.”  But, in all fairness, I’ve been driving for over 20 years, and I haven’t ever checked my air filter, so I’m glad SOMEBODY is thinking about it.

When you hear “Can you make a copy of this photo?”  Do you just make the copy, and hand it right back over?

Who is the photo professional?  Who is going to suggest if the photo should/could be restored?  Who is going to suggest if it should also be put on a CD/USB?  Who is going to suggest if this would be a good candidate to turn into a photo canvas for gifting?

You’re hearing “Can you make a copy of this?”  But there’s an unspoken understanding that if there is something important you should be telling them about there photo, THAT’S the time to do it.

Don’t let them down!
