Santa At Drive Thru
Several Christmases ago, I was driving through your store in Greensboro, NC and was on my way to the hospital to visit the children as Santa. Running late and knowing I needed to get there and simply spend the next two hours or so with all the kids, I put my Santa clothes on and started off to the hospital. I soon realized how hungry I was so I decided to stop for at Chick-fil-A for a Chick-fil-A Sandwich, my favorite. The team member was so impressed that Santa chose that place to stop that he and the manager agreed it was on the house. Really a great gesture for a hungry Santa and. As I was about to drive off and say something like "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night", the associate waved to me and said, "Santa's moving up now driving a Mercedes I see!" I smiled and thanked him and realized he got the better of me that night by a simple act of kindness helping someone dressed as Santa and maybe better off than him, but yet that little act of kindness still makes me smile and know there are some really good people out there.
This act inspired me to volunteer at the Daily Bread in Melbourne, FL (Santa now lives there)and try to pay back the under and unemployed and homeless and working poor with food and some basic needs. This has been rewarding and Chick-fil-A played a small role in making this happen so thanks!!!
