November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Offer Of A Lift Is Uplifting

| The Netherlands | Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers, Food & Drink

(It has been a very snowy day, and the pavements are dangerously slippery. I’m rounding up payment for a regular, but rather old and fragile customer, who has trouble walking.)

Customer: “Well, I hope it’s not too bad outside.”

Me: “You’re walking?”

Customer: “Yes, my children are out of town, and I do need my shopping done.”

Me: “My shift ends in about ten minutes, and I’m by car. If you want to wait for a bit, I can bring you home.”

(My boss overhears this.)

Boss: “Round up your shift; it’s quiet enough. You can go and bring her home immediately.”

(I take the customer home. One week later, the customer comes in with a home-made apple pie.)

Customer: “You went to the trouble of bringing me home, so I baked you this. Hope you enjoy it!”

(And we did!)
