I’m writing this letter to Chuck, the manager at Sid’s IGA Market in Seaview, to thank him for his thoughtfulness. I don’t normally shop at Sid’s, but I needed to grocery shop before going home to Ocean Park. I had been doing errands all day and just wanted to shop and get home. While getting the items I needed, I realized that I better get a Father’s Day card for my husband. The young man at the checkout counter was very pleasant and helpful, however he neglected to put the Father’s Day card in my bag. When I got home and unpacked my groceries, I couldn’t find the card. I was very tired and nursing a cold and decided to call Sid’s Market.

When the manager heard my story over the phone, he said come back to the store I remember seeing your Father’s Day card on the counter. I said, “No, I’m not feeling well and don’t feel like driving to Seaview, just please mail the card to my address. He said OK. An hour or so later, a truck stopped in front of our home, a man got out and walked into our yard holding a large mailing envelope, already with stamps on it. Chuck said to my husband, “I should give this to your wife, but since she is not feeling well, this is for you for Father’s Day, so don’t open it until then.” My husband was amazed and thanked the thoughtful store manager for bringing his Father’s Day card to him personally!
