I feel that as a society we are losing some of the service that was taken for granted 20 years ago. I'm 34 years old so I clearly remember when some things were different.
I remember when a service station always had an attendant to pump your gas, check your oil and clean your windshield. After I bought my first car, I always went to a station that did that. I didn't look at the price of gas anywhere else because that was my place. I would pay more for that service now. Most gas stations now have pay at the pump but its not the same.
The other service I miss are the grocery store carryout boys. I would pay a couple bucks extra to have somebody bring my groceries directly to my car and load them in. It's hard to push a full cart over snow packed ground with a newborn and little girl. Every store had carryout boys when I was growing up.
These are just a couple examples and in sure there are countless others. Are there any other small services that would make your day easier that you would pay a bit extra for?
