For so many of us, our jobs are simply what we have to wake up and do to put food on the table. And if those jobs involve dealing with customers, it can feel like a Herculean effort just to keep from saying how we really feel about them.
But for some incredible individuals, both their jobs and their customers' needs are an inspiration to make the world a little brighter than they found it. And while some express that passion for what they do in going above and beyond for vulnerable customers, others turn their daily duties into something creative that wows their guests.
And judging by how the staff of one Australian hotel responded to a guest's admittedly odd request, it helps a lot if the act of going above and beyond is fun for them as well.
