Ponoka reader: Good service changes a day

Ponoka News reader's day changes for the better thanks to good service: letter.

Dear Editor

In our current difficult times, many of us struggle to keep a smile on our lips and a sparkle in our eyes.

Lost jobs, mounting bills and a host of other issues fall heavy on shoulders making it tough to stay positive. Today was that day for me. The “check engine” light flashed on my dash, I’d missed the kids’ bus, and it was looking like I wasn’t going to make it to Edmonton for a contract meeting with a new client.

When I called Ponoka Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to see how long it would be before I could get my truck in, I expected at least a few days’ wait. By ten I was shuttled home and my truck was in. The kindness shown to me by the people in the service department and the mechanic who worked on my truck changed my world. Due to circumstances weighing on my own shoulders it was clearly evident life was dealing me a bit of a blow, but they shared generosity and support.

You never know the impact you have on another just by sharing a smile or lending an ear. Thank you to staff of the Ponoka Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram service department, for making a difference in my life.
