It was a happy day, thanks to Happy Joe’s

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

IN early Fe­bru­ary, I went on my lunch hour to the Safe­way on Kee­watin Street and Bur­rows Av­enue, hav­ing al­ready pur­chased our of­fice group lot­tery tick­ets from the Esso across the street.

In my haste to get as many things done as I could in an hour, I shoved the tick­ets, $12 worth, into a pocket of my purse that ap­par­ently wasn’t snapped closed very well. The ticket was folded up along with the sheet of pa­per that had our com­pany’s name and the names of the eight peo­ple in our lit­tle lot­tery group.

I guess as I en­tered the Safe­way, the ticket and the sheet of pa­per must have dropped out of my purse.

Shortly af­ter I got back to the of­fice, the phone rang and the caller was Geri (I hope I have spelled that cor­rectly) from Happy Joe’s Lot­tery Kiosk in the same mall. She called to in­form us that some­one had turned in our lot­tery tick­ets to her kiosk. I was ec­static. I hadn’t even pur­chased the ticket at her kiosk.

Thank you so very much to the per­son who turned in the ticket along with the sheet of names to Happy Joe’s. And thank you so very much, Geri at Happy Joe’s, for tak­ing the time to look up our com­pany’s phone num­ber, call­ing the num­ber and ask­ing to speak with any­body whose name was on that list.

You both made our day with your hon­esty.
