Good morning, Joel!
I would like to share a story with you from last night at the Piggly Wiggly here in town. I was in line to check out and we forgot to check out my cases of water. I got back in line then at the service counter. There was one woman that I was talking to and to the right of me was this nice gentleman in his Drexel blue hat and sweatshirt. He heard me say to the woman that I didn’t want to be late getting my daughter from daycare. He said, “mam…are you in a rush?” I hesitated because I would not ever normally say yes, but I did say, “yes, I have to pick my daughter up by 6pm and it is 5:55pm now”. He said, “well, mam, go before me then. I am not in a rush.”. The woman in front of us was done and he told the cashier I was next. I turned and thanked him immensely for his generosity and thoughtfulness. This warmed my heart. Now days no one seems to care about anyone but themselves and to know that a younger gentleman was this considerate about me and my time & family and even more proud to see that he was from a local business that prides themselves on core values. This gentleman carries these core values into his everyday life as well and it is awesome to see and experience. I wish I would have gotten his name. He had a little bit of an accent and was probably about 5′ 6″ or so. Very polite! I know we all hear enough of the bad things going on in this world that I wanted to share this positive experience with you this fine Friday morning! If I don’t talk to you again, Happy Thanksgiving to the Drexel & Fleishman Families! We all have so much to be thankful for.
