I was going to put this in my driveway thread as itís kinda related but not really. Mods if you want to move it feel free.
I grew up in a fairly small town and then when I got married moved to a smaller one. We have one traffic light.
Part of what I love about our little town are the smaller family owned businesses. The company that is doing our driveway is the type of business every business should drive to be.
First off they do the job right and it shows in their work. While they know that they wonít get people calling for them to come fix things they donít mind because they are to busy to have to do repairs and such. They believe that if you donít have the time to do it right the first time how will you have time to do it the second.
But thatís not the best part.
Years ago when we lived at our old house we had them seal our blacktopped driveway. The owners son was about 7 at the time and insisted on helping. This little man worked his behind off and it showed. When we paid the bill when they finished we made sure to give the son something as well because of how hard he worked.
Flash forward 11-12 years and they are at my in-laws putting a top coat of stones on my in-laws blacktopped driveway.
My son ran out to help them sweep and blow all the dirt off the driveway.
While we were standing around talking last night the owner walked over to my son and paid him for helping.
We told him that he didnít have to and we were bringing up our son that itís nice to help and not expect anything.
He told us that years ago a really nice couple (aka us) did the same thing for his son. And that he wanted to return the favor and do the same for our son. He told us that the night we paid his son meant the world to him and his son.
This is why I love living were we do. This is more of the norm and not the unusual.
