You've Got To Be Kidding
This past summer we were faced with a decision that most of us who live in the Coastal Plains of Virginia have to make each year. Should we stay and ride out the storm or head for bluer skies. A hurricane was threatening our shores and the decision was made for all of us girls to head towards the mountains of Virginia while the Papa stayed behind with our lab, Ethel...to hold down the fort.
Our decision was made last minute and with that comes lots of forgotten things. During our drive to Northern Virginia, we stopped at our favorite fast food, Chick-fil-A. As usual, we were satisfied and drove off not knowing that my oldest daughter, Hannah, had forgotten her purse on the picnic table we were eating at outside!
We arrived at our safe haven and my daughter received a call from the Operator of Chick-fil-A that her purse had been turned in at the Restaurant and she would hold it there for her until we could pick it up. We totally forgot that we would be driving home on a Sunday which meant that the Restaurant would not be open. We called the Operator back and said she could just take it to the fast food restaurant next door and we would pick it up there. She said it was no problem and that she would meet us at the store on Sunday to hand deliver the purse to us. We were shocked. Really? On her day off this woman was going to drive to work to meet strangers? It got better.
We were delayed in meeting her at our planned time, but once again she said, "No problem" and would meet us on an exit ramp that was convenient for us as we were headed home. We were truly amazed! These people are incredible. Who does that anymore? Chick-fil-A does. They truly embody the "greatest among you shall be the servant of all." No wonder this company continues to prosper. I will continue to give them my business and brag about their "above and beyond" practices.
