Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Stretching the Sharing


--by gardengal10, posted Sep 24, 2022
Made several loaves of zucchini bread (courgettes for my friends across the pond) from our garden bounty. Instead of giving away loaves, I've given away slices of the sweet bread to friends. Sometimes that is all you need with a cup of tea or coffee. AND....it stretches the number of people with whom I can share it.

Due to supply chain issues (still, forever), I could not find my favorite cleaning product in stores. I checked the manufacturer's website and found that it was available. I ordered several bottles from them. When the package arrived,

I discovered that they had doubled my order, but didn't charge me for the extras. I phoned customer service. The rep couldn't have been nicer. She said that since the error was their mistake that I could keep the extras at no charge. After our conversation, I took the phone survey and gave the rep and the company their highest rating. I gave one of the bottles of cleaner to a friend who also had difficulty trying to find the product on store shelves.

Your honesty to report extra bottle is a very good deed indeed. Sharing extra bottle with friend doubles your kindness.

Rating highest for the business is your good business. Thanks for inspiring kind acts.
