What’s another word for meh?
October 31, 2018

“How was your dinner?”

If your restaurant customer answers “fine,” it probably wasn’t. So says The Convenience Revolution author Shep Hyken.

“Fine is the F-bomb of customer service,” Shep says. And no wonder. Is there a word that more readily conjures up “meh” than that does?

“Do you want pasta tonight?” Fine. “How was your date?” Fine. “What do you think of my new dress?” Fine.

You get the idea.

But you don’t have to eliminate “fine” from your vocabulary, Shep says. Just put an adjective (well, adverb) in front of it. Tell the chef his spaghetti was “mighty fine.” He’ll appreciate it!
