How We Met Day 3: Business Unusual
It's Day 3 of the How We Met series and today's stories are all about Business Unusual. When business interactions bring you more than you bargained for! ;)
Here's A.O.'s story:
I got the mechanic’s phone number and gave him a call to ask him for a quote per my insurance company’s instructions. I took the car in to get evaluated and decided to get it serviced since I was at the auto shop anyways. As I sat in the waiting room, the guy came to check on me periodically to update me and offered me a soft drink and water which I declined. He was so polite and even offered me an unsolicited discount when he was done. I felt his customer service was on point. I told my sister how great his customer service was and how he even offered me drinks. She looked at me and was like “he didn’t do that when I went there o.”
Sure enough as she thought, a few days later, the questions about me started. He remained professional for the duration my car was getting repaired and went the extra mile in fixing up my car….even things I didn’t realize were wrong. Once I had my car back, the ‘drinks meet up’ requests started. After sometime, I yielded to the requests and that was the beginning of an amazing friendship.

The moral of these stories? You just never know who you'll meet when you go about your day-to-day business. Get busy, stay busy, walk in your purpose, and in all things and at all times, keep an open mind and don't limit what is possible!
