Random Acts of Kindness (and Generosity)!

14 Sep

A couple came to our store a few weeks ago, and I mistakenly didn’t get their credit card back in their hands before they left the store. Once I realized I still had it, I tried to track them down on the streets, but had no luck. So, I put the card in an envelope, and took the envelope to Cruise Ship Services, a liaison company for cruise ships that come to town. They managed to track down the customer’s ship, and delivered the envelope to the ship (to be returned to the customer). This has happened a few times in the past, and I know that it safely gets to them (I even had a customer return to our store this year, who thanked me for getting the card back to their ship a few years ago). Anyways…no sweat…it happens, and I take full responsibility for failing to get the card back to them…they have enough to worry about with bags, etc.

Anyways, long story short, this most recent couple sent me a sweet card, and a $50 GIFT CARD!!! Wahooo! How’s that for “Random Acts of Kindness”? Jared thinks we should keep everyone’s credit cards, then return them, and see how much we can make…hahaha…JUST KIDDING!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You are such wonderful people. And totally deserving of a gift card.

    Jared is hilarious, that is something I would have thought up too. But even cooler is the 50 bucks! It pays to be awesome I guess!
