Employees saved the day not once, but twice
WE were flying home to Winnipeg from Thunder Bay and had gone through security at 9 p.m., only to find our WestJet flight was delayed. The Tim Hortons in departures had closed. I talked to a female Air Canada employee who had just loaded their plane. She had great empathy for us being hungry and offered to go past security and get us a sandwich. She cleared it with security and returned, on her own time, and security put the sandwich through the scanner. To the Air Canada employee, we thank you so much for going beyond your duties. We really enjoyed that sandwich. Too often, we hear Air Canada being criticized. This is a big bouquet to the Air Canada employee. Meanwhile, in August, I was shopping with my daughter and my two young granddaughters at Reitmans. It wasn’t until we got to Polo Park that the 12-year-old realized she was missing her purse. We phoned Reitmans and were relieved to learn an employee had found her purse. As my daughter was heading home to Fisher Branch, I retrieved the purse the next day. Everything was in the purse, including $20 cash and a $25 gift card. To the employee who found the purse, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
