A real gift

The world has enjoy/endured my existence for a very long time and I have seen a lot of things come and go. I'm old enough to remember when

  • children were taught to say, 'sir' and 'ma'am',
  • 'the customer is always right' and
  • that newfangled tv was just a fad.

One of the sadder things that have gone to the wayside is customer appreciation over the years.

But today I was taken back 50 years to a time when it was the norm. Hubby came in with a package from Vodafone today. It was an actual Christmas present from Vodafone (who put in our broadband fiber last month).

Among the lovely contents was:

  • a box of chocolates
  • a holiday recipe magazine
  • a limited edition book
  • a grinch DVD and Christmas sticker
  • more chocolate
  • a movie pass for two
  • $50 credit on the account
  • a water bottle
  • a family card game
  • Christmas candy canes
  • and a hand-written note signed 'love, Vodafone!'

I am quite impressed. Well done, vodafone!

That's really above and beyond. Quite a nice company. It's a two way street though. I worked with the public for many years, and even though they always came first and problems were worked out to their satisfaction; I think I've been called every name in the book over a long period of time, and rudeness was more common than it should have been. It's been pleasant not dealing with that anymore. Wishing you and your family the best this Christmas. Take care.
