The Slice

Amazing moment in customer service

Shirley Schoenleber saw a recent Slice headline referring to new-car smell.

It reminded her of a story.

“In 1973, I purchased a brand new Ford Pinto from a local dealer.”

For reasons she can no longer recall, she arranged to have it driven to her home.

But here's the thing.

The young man who drove Schoenleber's new car to her place smoked a cigarette en route. Can you imagine?

“Even stubbed the butt out in my new car!”

It was the first and last cigarette smoked in her little car while she owned it.
