Please Tell Your Story of Someone Being Pleasantly Courteous
Late Monday afternoon I purchased tickets for my folks, friends, family members of friends, and myself for tomorrow evening's encounter between the New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics at the Oakland Coliseum.
The gentleman who manned the security post at the mouth of the complex's parking lot smiled with a certain ineffable warmth as he welcomed me into his domain. For the sake of relaxing myself I asked him--just to be unquestionably sure--that the respective venues's box offices of the complex were "open."
The ladies at the venue were extraordinarily pleasant and helpful, remarkably informative as I sought the best-possible tickets. Told them that we are all baseball fans and they smiled brightly in grand contentment and comprehension.
Walked across the plaza (approximately 200 feet or so?) and walked up to the one box office window open at the next-door Oracle Arena, long the home of the Golden State Warriors (who are moving across the bay this year).
Inquiring about tickets for Iron Maiden's concert on Tuesday, September 10, this lady was superbly kind, while transmitting information that (this was at 4:57 PM west coast time, so the box office was three minutes away from closing for the day) she was tired and dreading her 5:30 meeting in the bowels of the aged arena. This lady helped me considerably in picking out the best-available seats. I did all that I could to assure her that she would doubtless get through it with aplomb. As with the ladies at the A's booth, I thanked her for quintessential assistance.
While driving out of the parking lot I rolled down the passenger side window and yelled out to the security guard, "Thank you again so much!"
"No problem, man! Take it easy, brother!" he yelled in response.
Does it not simply make life a better experience when people are most kind and considerate?
Please share your story of someone being pleasantly courteous!
