by Steven Ferry

It has been a quiet month in the media from the butler perspective. The only mentions were another mis-use of the word—Trash-Butler—which is a doorstep rubbish and recycling pick-up service for multi-family dwellings. The other was a Hippie Butler—who would have guessed? In case you cannot work it out, people who smoke marijuana apparently need a lot of gear or paraphernalia. Hippie Butler provides a superior approach to building the needed gear for its subscribers.

I am sure all these inane uses of the word would leave our forebears in the profession simply speechless—much like in the cartoon below!

The Institute is dedicated to raising service standards by broadly disseminating the mindset and superior service expertise of that time-honored, quintessential service provider, the British Butler, updated with modern people skills, and adapted to the needs of modern employers and guests in staffed homes, luxury hotels, resorts, spas, retirement communities, jets, yachts & cruise ships around the world.
