For Spring Break, I decided to take my two little boys down to Florida to see my parents. We left and had a very long and stressful day with the worst traffic. I needed gas and pulled over at exit 3 in Kingsland, GA. I picked the gas station next to the Chick-fil-A because I knew that we would get a clean bathroom and some food to put us in a better mood. The boys and I went to the restroom and I thought that the drive-through would be better because I had my hands full.
When I got back outside, I saw my keys laying on the floor of my locked car. I could not reach my husband on the phone and started to panic. I was in an unfamiliar place with two cranky kids. I went back inside and the manager, Lamar, was standing right there. He could see I needed help and came over to talk to me. I explained my story and he quickly jumped on the phone to see what he could do. Even though he was getting ready to go home, Lamar told me that he would stay until I was in my car. The police and my traveling company were not able to help. We both continued to make calls to try and figure out what to do. My boys had reached their limit and I was overwhelmed. Lamar encouraged us to go inside and eat. I ordered and went to pay, but he had taken care of the bill.
At this point, I had gotten in contact with my husband and parents. We were all scrambling to find someone to unlock the car. Lamar made so many calls that eventually his phone died. He managed to find someone to come unlock my car and I got my keys. I could see Lamar talking to the locksmith, and when I asked how much I owed, they both said it had been taken care of and just to pass on the good deed. What a blessing that we had such wonderful people there to help! We made it to Florida and are currently enjoying our break. Thank you to Lamar for being such an awesome help. Way to go Chick-fil-A for having such a caring company!
