Today another story came to my mind about my many numerous trips to Montreal on Highway 401 East. This one in particular really stood out for me and I need to share it with you all today. I stopped at the OnRoute Service Center in Morrisburg, Ontario stop and I had come to this service center so much that the employees started to remember me. I was ordering at the Tim Horton’s and they said, hey I remember seeing you here 2 weeks ago. I said yes, that was me. Shes like your in a good mood whenever I see you. I said of course. I am going to Montreal to my happy place. I am always happy when I go there, but coming back To Toronto, not so much. She said, I know what you mean, I love Montreal too. So then afterwards, I said thank you for serving me. I appreciate it. I said to her I will be back next week to Montreal. She said, I will be working next weekend too. She said come by. I am usually here in the morning hours. I said sure thing.
At that point I went to Montreal 35 times last year in 2011 and it was amazing. So I went to Montreal, came back West, and I stopped at another service center and yet another worker from another Tim Horton’s remembered me. I said to this person, How does everyone remember me so well? I said it happened to me on Friday Morning when I was going to Montreal. Another lady said, well, your face is someone to remember. They said someone very nice is always remembered. I said, aw thank you so much. So, I grabbed my coffee and I went on with my journey back To Toronto.
Then as I was heading to Montreal the week after, I talked to the worker again and she was so excited to see me again, and shes like here’s my e-mail, contact me whenever and keep in touch. I said sure, she was excited when I e-mailed her right away. We have kept in touch since and she said, come by to My town anytime, and we’ll hang out. I said sure. I may go soon to see her.
Anyway, the moral of the story is, Always be nice to people who serve you, they have to serve so many people in so little time. It is always good to be patient and have some courtesy. Kindness and being nice goes a long way in anything and you will be remembered and they will appreciate and look out for you whenever. Have fun and be calm with anything in life.
What a funny thing I witnessed today. I could not believe it with some people, I just couldn’t stop laughing. Today, I decided to go out to a coffee shop called Tim Horton’s and I ordered an Iced Latte. So I went and sat down. As I am drinking and relaxing for almost 10 minutes, I see this guy 2 tables down from me looking around and about, so 2 minutes later, he pulls out his phone and starts to talk, This ordinary guy, and so another 5 minutes goes by and he is still yapping on his phone about pointless stuff that makes him look ridiculous, then to his surprise, the phone rings twice while he is talking on his cell phone. The first person he saw was me and I looked at him and I shook my head and started to giggle. He felt so embarrassed and I can sort of tell, that he was pretending to talk on the phone. He just picked his Iced Cappuccino up and he left like no tomorrow humiliated .
Dude, if your going to pretend to talk with your cell phone, at least put it on silent. He had a blackberry same as Me and he is trying to show it off. I can’t believe it. So many people have phones these days and its not a rare occurrence. He has to show off and try to look cool. I was sort of eavesdropping on his conversation because he was so close to me and I was alone having my Iced Latte, so he was going on about how his date was last night, how he had a blast, how he said Yeah I am going on a date with her again tonight, then a little bit of a pause to try and pretend that he is talking to someone else on the other side, and then he went on to talk again. I just laughed so hard. We didn’t say a word to each other after I caught him with his phone ringing loud by his ear.
Now, sometimes I wonder if people are actually talking on their cell phones in a public place, and I actually wonder if there is someone on the other line actually having conversations with these people. It’s happened again when I was flying to Vancouver, BC at the airport while waiting for my flight at the gates. This other guy was pretending to talk on his cell phone and it rang. This was at almost 8am in the morning just about to board my flight. It was so funny. I mean what do people gain by doing this stuff? It is beyond me. Maybe for self-satisfaction or something. I don’t know, but it is ridiculous and looks ridiculous.
Well, I am sure that guy today learned his lesson to never pretend to talk on a phone again. I sort of felt sorry for the guy, but it was a big time Epic Fail lol.
