The Way I See It

The way I see it, I am convinced that there are still some good people in the world.
As a point of reference, I want to take some time out today to big up’ the good people at TDC.
Now don’t get me wrong, I was not asked to do an ad for them and that is not my intention, but if it works out that way…well, God be praised.
Several years ago, I took my bus to a particular garage for its regular servicing. I forgot some money in the ash tray and when I returned to collect he bus, the money was gone. As expected, NOBODY took it nor knew anything about it!
Since then with my most recent vehicle, having being purchased from TDC, I do the regular servicing there.
On Thursday 15th December, I was scheduled to work in St.Kitts. My assignment for the day, was to video record some of the game between Leeward Hurricanes and Jamaica Scorpions, so that you good folks in Nevis, could see some of what transpired.
By the way, when I am doing such recordings, it’s not WORK because I enjoy my job.
I remember a recent quotation from Mr. Michael Morton (TDC connection again) that ‘if you love your job, you will never have to work another day in your life.’
Now that’s deep and I am privileged to have such a job.
Back to the matter at hand… So I went to Warner Park and discovered to my chagrin, that instead of the match commencing at 10 am it was due to start at 3pm as it was a day/night fixture.
Well I newa!
What to do then? Should I return to Nevis and not record anything, cause I had already planned to be back up by 1 pm to collect my bus and pay for the service.
I decided that I would still record the game. I called TDC and was told in a polite manner that if I would be returning after the office was closed, I may not get the bus.
I called the boss, my friend Tony Nisbett and I told him what had happened. He told me that I could get somebody to collect the bus and then pay the following morning.
What service! Sure feels nice to be so trusted, as a regular customer.
My son collected the bus and I got to Nevis about 6 pm.
The following day, Friday, VAT day, I drove to TDC to make the payment and my goodness, you don’t want to see traffic! Vehicles upon vehicles—people upon people at TDC, cashing in on the VAT day discounts.
I spoke to the courteous cashier and made the payment, only to discover that I had qualified for an extra discount because of the special day.
Well I newa!
However, that’s good but I have another commendation for them: Since my experience with the missing cash from my ash tray, I have virtually emptied my bus before I take it for servicing. I did the same on that morning, but only when I was in St.Kitts, after my son had collected the bus, I realized that I had forgotten a bag with some very precious and dear stuff inside it, in the bus!
I panicked. I held my breath and I prayed long and hard. My son assured me that the people at TDC were not like that. They won’t take my bag nor my scarce possessions.
When I got to Nevis, I breathed a sigh of relief. Not only was the bag still in place, but my scarce resources were also very much intact.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
I am confident that they saw the bag. They could not have missed it, unless they had on blinders, but they left it alone.
Kudos to TDC and the people who work there. I commend them highly and most importantly, I give all praise and honour to God.
That’s the way I see it. How do you see it?
