Thanks for kind­ness from shop worker

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, Among my shop­ping at Tesco yes­ter­day was a pack of six 1.5l bot­tles of wa­ter which, of course, is heavy.

Now, I’ve reached the age when I ad­mit that I look as old as I am – 77 – and the young man check­ing me out en­dorsed this by glanc­ing at me and lift­ing the pack of wa­ter, car­ry­ing it round the end of the con­veyor belt and plac­ing it in my trol­ley.

Never has this hap­pened be­fore – it was such kind­ness and courtesy.

We have hol­i­dayed in Oban two or three times an­nu­ally for many years and have to say that the young man’s at­ten­tion typ­i­fies the cheer­ful, help­ful and friendly ser­vice we in­vari­ably ex­pe­ri­ence.

All the woollen mill shops, the shoe shop, Ben­der­loch’s pink shop and the shop at Port Ap­pin par­tic­u­larly come to mind.

We York­shire folk like to think of our­selves as friendly, but bravo Oban.

Roy Bramwell, St Ian’s Croft, Ad­ding­ham, Ilk­ley, West Yorks.
