This has been flying around Facebook. Good bit of advertising.

'Chris King (age 27 & 1/3)' made me chuckle.

This is really lovely. To just take that little bit of time to reply to this letter in such a nice way is wonderful. Don't care if it is good marketing/PR or what ever, Chris King (age 27 & 1/3) is a very nice man and I'll bet he never even considered the response it would get. Smile

I wasn't being cynical with my response, I think it is genuinely caring. However it is definitely good marketing, as far as I am concerned Customer Service (note the capitals) is the most important aspect of marketing.

My fave urban Myth is the Bristol zoo car park attendent:

Fw: A well-planned retirement

From The London Times:

Outside the Bristol Zoo, in England, there is a parking lot for 150 cars and 8 coaches, or buses.

It was manned by a very pleasant attendant with a ticket machine charging cars 1 pound (about $1.40) and coaches 5 (about $7).

This parking attendant worked there solid for all of 25 years. Then, one day, he just didn't turn up for work.

"Oh well", said Bristol Zoo Management - "we'd better phone up the City Council and get them to send a new parking attendant..."

"Err ... no", said the Council, "that parking lot is your responsibility."

"Err ... no", said Bristol Zoo Management, "the attendant was employed by the City Council, wasn't he?"

"Err ... NO!" insisted the Council.

Sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain, is a bloke who had been taking the parking lot fees, estimated at 400 pounds (about $560) per day at Bristol Zoo for the last 25 years. Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over 3.6 million pounds ($7 million).

And no one even knows his name.

I really guffawed whan I first read this one, as I actually know a man who's been working there as a car parking attendant for quite a few years now, and he most certainly isn't living on the Spanish coast. Grin
