first i want to wish you all a happy thanksgiving.
i hope everyone had a good day shared with famialy and friends with enough food available along with a roof over their heads.
in spite of the usa finical crisis we still have allot to be thankful for. esspecially ef you have a roof over your head and food in your stomach.
i read an artical yesterday of a religious colomnist who said" don't ask for more stuff untill you give thanks and reflect on what you allready have!"
my dad, my aunt and i (as dave) ended up with last min reservation changes due to the financial crisis at charlie browns restaurant chain. the one we scheduled for in raritan nj near my aunt had closed without calling us to cancel our reservations (and without giving notice to their employees i heard)
lucky our local one in my town remained open and they very graciously moved our reservations for there. so in spite of the confusion and the snow/rain we at least had a very nice dinner. and although the corperate seceratary was not very accomadating when i mentioned that there isn't even a recording when one calles the closed locations... the assistant manager shelly went out on a limb for us . wow she even adapted my aunt as here own! by the end of the day i was calling here "cousen shelly" LOL
so the lesson to be learned is... even with the financial crisis please please please treat your costumers as if they were well loved family and personal friends .
