Old fashioned courtesy
I just bought an item from Arnold Heals in Newport Isle of Wight through his ebay outlet, his carriers must have lost or mislaid the package, so it was straight on the phone to a very pleasant guy named Jai, & I have just received a replacement consignment no questions asked!
Thumbs up for Arnold Heals then.
It's not often anymore you get real gestures of courtesy!
Last one for me was when l borrowed a stalking friends pick-up (newish Mitzy) - had to move a dog kennel and when l got in it it was disgusting - i'm not kidding it there was an inch of dust/dried mud on the floor-throughout and the dash was covered in coffee stains and tea spills!
I spent twenty minutes on my drive hovering it/wiping it out 'roughly' and used it, then handed it back without saying anything-to be honest l just made it bearable for me to drive!
An hour later l got a call from him genuinely honestly thanking me for the clean-out - i was chuff'd!
Some chaps would sue for less!!!!
Being courteous and giving a smile is something that anyone can do as it doesn't cost anything and helps to make life easier. Give it a try, it gives pleasure to the giver and the receiver but only if you mean it.
You never know someone might just put some shooting your way!
i cut a old lady's grass and it takes me over 3 hours every 2 weeks and for that her son lets me stalk on 1800acres of land
