More nice Yorkers and good customer service

So, around Christmastime, I had posted about some nice people I encountered while out and about in York.

This week, I had two more above-and-beyond niceness encounters that I also thought were worth mentioning.

First, Bev at the Pizza Hut on Loucks Road, who took my call when I was hoping to get one of those neat “Double Deep” pizzas they’d be advertising on TV. I haven’t ordered a pizza in about four years (don’t laugh!), so I had no idea how this whole thing might work. And when she told me they didn’t have the Double Deeps anymore, I didn’t quite know what to get. But she was very patient, and explained all my different sauce and crust and topping options.

I think my favorite part was when she asked if I was sitting down before giving me the price. More than 14 bucks for a medium pizza? But I went with the hand-tossed, one topping on the whole thing then different toppings on each half on top of that, so I can kind of understand. But, wow… I know why I don’t do the pizza thing that often, that’s for sure!

Another nice Yorker came, coincidentally, just a couple of blocks behind that Pizza Hut at the Susquehanna Bank. I pulled up with a deposit at almost exactly 6 p.m., their closing time. The woman inside took off her coat, greeted me politely, thanked me, then offered my daughter not only a lollipop but also a sheet of stickers.

If you’ve had any good experiences at places you visit in your York County wanderings, let me know!

    This generous woman & I met in December 2006 on a street corner in East York. My car was at Cloister on Market Street having the interior shampooed because a gallon container of cider had tipped over in the back and the whole gallon’s worth emptied onto the carpet. While it was being cleaned I walked over to first Walmart, then to Sam’s to kill the time. If you’ve ever walked very far or even pumped gas at Sam’s over there that has to be one of the windiest parts of all York County. It was cold and I was miserable.
    When I came out of Sam’s about two hours later to walk back to Cloister, it not only was as cold as the bejeebers, but now there was also a wind-driven rain coming down. I was not dressed for the cold wind, let alone the driving rain.
    As I approached the intersection across from Cloister a car came screeching to a stop in front of me. The woman driver rolled down the passenger-side window and said “You poor thing. Get in.” Not one to accept most of anything from a stranger, including getting into a vehicle, I balked, saying my car is just across the street. Again, she said get in, I’ll take you there. Given the circumstances–me being half frozen by an icy, wind-driven rain and desparate for some heat relief, I reluctently got in–or at least attempted to.
    The front passenger seat was full of a lot of stuff, as was the floor in the front, so I’m wondering where am I supposed to sit. She saw my reluctance and moved as much as she could out of the way, and apologizingly said, “I’m on my way to New Orleans for my church to assist with Katrina cleanup.”
    Her car filled with everything imaginable and more, on her way to do amazing work in New Orleans, this woman saw a frozen waif standing on a street corner and stopped to offer assistance. Truly amazing!
    After forcing her way across two lanes of traffic to get into the left-turn lane, in mid-afternoon in East York, a near-death-defying trick, the very kind lady dropped me off at Cloister’s door and went on her way.
