Man always asks for the same cheerful server in a restaurant — one day he offers him an amazing gift

Great customer service is essential in the food business. When customers encounter their waiter or waitress, they care a lot about the attitude of the person who’s serving them. Are they smiling? Are they prompt? Do they have manners? If the answer is ‘no’ to all of these questions, the server will probably not receive a tip, or the customer might complain to the manager. If the waiter is wonderful, well they might receive a big reward!

Edward Pollard, an attorney, is a frequent customer at a restaurant across the street from his office.

“Each time I eat there I request a specific server. This gentleman takes such pride in his work. He is always extremely polite and conversational,” Pollard wrote on his Facebook page.

What makes this waiter’s customer service even more amazing is that Pollard has seen his rather unpleasant commute—but he will always come to work in a great mood.

“Many times when I leave work I see this gentleman walking to or sitting at the bus stop. I have seen him walking in the blazing summer heat and I have seen him walking in the harsh cold winter. No matter his circumstances, when I see him at work he is always upbeat and a joy to be around.”

Pollard was so inspired by the positivity of his favorite server, he decided to make his commute less trouble and offer him a gift—he provided this man with a car!

“God has blessed me to own an extra car—a car that I rarely use unless there is an emergency. For Christmas, God placed on my heart that I should give my extra car to this gentleman.”

Pollard told his server, “You always treat me so well when we come in here, and I really appreciate that.” He pointed to a silver car across a parking lot and said, “That car right there, that’s your car.”

The server was so happy and grateful, he tried to hold back tears. Pollard said that we should “be mindful of others, and when possible, do something to encourage and lift them up.”

And the attorney did just that. His favorite server no longer has to walk through extreme weather to work. His commute can now be as joyful as his customer service.

I routinely frequent a popular restaurant for lunch across the street from my office. Each time I eat there I request a specific server. This gentleman takes such pride in his work. He is always extremely polite and conversational…the kind of person who instantly can put a smile on your face. Many times when I leave work I see this gentleman walking to or sitting at the bus stop. I have seen him walking in the blazing summer heat and I have seen him walking in the harsh cold winter. No matter his circumstances when I see him at work he is always upbeat and a joy to be around.God has blessed me to own an extra car. A car that I rarely use unless there is an emergency. For Christmas God placed on my heart that I should give my extra car to this gentleman. So with the help of Elite Collision Center, we were able to get the car in great running order and detailed like new. I presented this car to him the day after Christmas and he was so appreciative.As we embark on 2018, be mindful of others, and when possible, do something to encourage and lift them up. Let’s pledge to do everyday simple things in 2018 to be the change we want to see. Happy New Year.
