Good Customer Service - 05/02/14

   Lately, I'm on a great streak landing THE BEST store clerks in Middle Tennessee.  In just the last few months, I've had a clerk at Dunham's Sporting Goods in Columbia, a clerk at Michael's, a clerk at Target, a clerk at Bath & Body Works & a clerk at Belk pull a coupon out of their own pocket and give it to me during my transaction.
   I'm a couponer as you know if you watch my Saving You Money segments.  However, sometimes I forget mine or maybe it's expired.  These nice clerks, in every instance, thought enough of this customer to take a few extra seconds to save me money.  For that, I am forever loyal to their store and their brand.  Save me a few bucks--- I'm yours!
   Two of them didn't technically pull out a paper coupon.  They asked me to get out my smartphone and pulled up the coupon there.  The others had extra paper coupons and gladly handed them over.  One such coupon saved me about $50.  It was for a kayak, which was a big purchase anyway.  Then the coupon for a certain percentage off just made my day... actually it made my week.
    You hear so much bad about customer service these days.  I just had to take a moment to set the record straight.  There are still plenty of businesses that value business.  Either they hire well, train well or maybe their employees just have initiative.
   Either way, I'm endeared to Dunham's, Target, Michael's, Bath & Body Works & Belk.

MANNING RECORD - KEEP-AWAY

DENVER (AP) -- It was a game of keep-way -- with Peyton Manning's record-breaking football. Manning set the new mark in NFL career touchdown passes last night against the San Francisco 49ers. Manning's teammates had a little fun with him after throwing TD 509. When Manning went to get the ball, his fellow Broncos played keep-away. Manning jokes his teammates were picking on him. Manning finally did get the ball, but he didn't get to hold it very long. It's going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Manning threw another TD for a total of four, in the Broncos 42-17 victory at home.

TEEN CANDIDATE

DACONO, Colo. (AP) -- If Jory Coates wins a city council seat -- he'll have to toast his victory with soda pop. At 18, Coates is old enough to vote but not to drink. He's running for the Dacono, Colorado, City Council. He's a recent high school graduate and works in a pizzeria. He's funding his campaign with about 100 bucks he's made at his pizza job. Coates is using the money to buy signs and posters. But Coates isn't sure his future is in politics. He tells the Longmont Times-Call he also wants to study to become an emergency medical technician or a nurse.

BEE HOBBY

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- Michele Boling says she has a healthy respect for boxes full of bugs. She better -- because Boling is an amateur beekeeper. Her hives in Bowling Green, Kentucky, produce honey and beeswax. She says in the two years since she got her first hive, beekeeping has moved from a hobby to a passion. She tells a local paper (Daily News), she sometimes wishes that people were more like bees. Boling says bees are never out for themselves but only for the good of the hive.
