Em­ploy­ees saved the day not once, but twice

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

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.
