The Who & Cafe Dufrain….Tampa FL

Yesterday 4-15-2015 my customers went to Cafe Dufrain and The Who Concert in Tampa FL.

They had a blast at both.  They had not been to Cafe Dufrain and neither had I. The menu looked excellent and they stated it was indeed excellent. I will have to take my wife there sometime soon.

They also said The Who came through with an awesome concert playing almost 3 hours.  They played all their popular songs and had cool graphics on the jumbo screens.  Roger Daltry and Mr. Pete Townsend and their drummer Zak Starkey did not disappoint bringing the intensity one would expect from The Who.

Zak Starkey, is Ringo Starr’s son…Ringo Starr was one of Kieth Moon’s closest friends (Mr Moon was The Who’s original drummer). Kieth Moon gave Zak Starkey a drum kit at the age of 8 and referred to Kieth Moon as “Uncle Kieth.” Wikipedia article >>> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zak_Starkey

I am 55 and a former drummer. I fashioned my drumming style after Mr Kieth Moon and I never knew this about Zak Starkey….it is very cool for me. I thank my customer last night for peaking my interest as she told me she thought Zak Starkey was Mr. Ringo Starr’s son and that he was awesome on his drum kit. Here is a photo of Mr Starkey on stage with Mr. Roger Daltry.

When I picked my customer up at the end of the night I asked if she needed any cold beverages….her response was…..no thank you, I am happy and she proceeed to tell me about the night and how great it was.

Simply, Awesome

My night was also

I went to pick up one of my regular customers at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Tampa FL the other night at about 1:00am.  I had not been there in a while and it was fun to see the beauty of the facility.  The throngs of people coming and going never ceases to amaze me.

It was a fun night driving!

Salami Festival

Ok, so I just cannot help myself……..a customer I picked up the other day was “pranked” and sent me the video from YouTube……They asked her to help them find the Salami Festival at the corners of Long and Hard!  lololol……the way she told the story was hilarious! The video is funny but my customers telling of the prank on her was even more hilariously funny!

First of all, my congrats goes out to…….. 

Juan Pablo Montoya wins Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

On Saturday 3/28/2015 I was blessed with the opportunity to pu a Media representative at the Tampa International Airport and bring him to the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.  MAN I loved it!

I got to go inside the pit areas where all the cars, trucks, drivers etc were.

In a word….awesome!

I could have spent all day there, but I simply could not as I had other customers to pick up. But while I was there I grabbed a couple pics!

The St. Petersburg Police were helpful as always! Thank you!

A Simple bag of Chips…..Lots of Laughs!

Once again, this last Friday was full of laughter…….all because of a simple bag of Lays Classic Potato Chips. 

It was simply awesome. Another reason and one of the main reasons I LOVE what I do. 

20150117_1613261.jpg

The basket pictured here is full of snacks, chocolates …….and Lays Chips for my customers to enjoy. One of the reasons I do this is because of the reactions I get from the customers when they see it.  It is simply so much fun.  Another reason is because it gives my customers a small snack to take with them on a plane if they want to, They are there for anyone.  No matter how much the fare is, no matter if they tip me or not.  It is more about the experience and the fun for all of us.  :-))!

Typically, I will encourage my customer to take a snack…..so that the person or persons around them will be jealous on the plane!  Hehehehe :)

This last Friday, one of those moments came to light as one of my favorite customers shared her story with me of her bag of chips on the plane.  She could not wait to tell me and I could not wait to hear it once she had stated she had a story for me. I was already chuckling as she said that because I could just imagine. :)

Two weeks prior, I had taken her to the airport, dropped her off and I suggested she take something for the flight as I always do…..she said….”ya know Lance….I think I will take a bag of chips.”  I said….yeah and rustle the bag a bit and eat each one slowly!  She thought that was a great idea and we got a little chuckle out of it and off she went. I wasn’t sure she would, just thought she would eat them and that would be that.

Now, Friday, I pick her up on her return flight into Tampa. We get in the car and we are not even out of the parking garage and she is bursting at the seems like that bag of chips to tell me her story.  That part alone was hilarious.  She is very funny anyway normally so this was even better :)….I was already laughing. I still am even as I write this.

The Story of Laughs!

Customer: So Lance, ya know those bag of chips?

Me: Yes……

Customer: Lance that bag of chips was so puffed up and huge like a pillow when I went to open them on the plane!  I rustled the bag a bit and people started looking.

Remember this Lays Commercial below, with the little girl?  This is basically how the story is…..and how I can see my customer …..ohhhh man I am laughing out loud as I write this,,,,lololol….I don’t know maybe you had to be there but man it was funny! Still is!

Lays Chips Commercial

Customer: Lance….that bag of chips being so puffed up…..POPPED!  It made a POP SOUND when I opened it!! (as she laughs)

Me: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA……..AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…..doubled over LOLOL!

Customer:  And Lance……..the aroma of the chips coming out……people were looking….you could tell they were wondering where I got the bag of chips.  Oh and the flight attendants were not able to get out of their seats due to some turbulence, so they could not pass out snacks!! (as she laughs)

Me: OMG! …..AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA   AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA    AHAHAHAHAHA ( having a hard time breathing at this point! lolol)

Customer: So Lance….now I have the bag open and people are again looking…..wondering….smelling….(as she says with a smirk in her voice, which made me laugh even more!)

Me: DId you eat each one slowly??  (laughing as I asked)

Customer: Ohhhhh I did Lance……it must have taken me an hour to eat that little bag!

Me:  Out of control laughing at this point…….tears running out of my eyes!! I could just see her doing it….making each customers mouth water for something salty. lolololol…..Can you see the little girl in that commercial???  Ohhhh mannnn I sure could and I loved it!

Customer: And then after i was done I continued to fold the bag over and over making a slight crinkling sound……(as she laughs)

Me:  More and more….continued laughs……huge laughs!

Customer:  Lance, who would know that a simple little bag of chips would provide so much entertainment.

So, as I drove on, we talked more about it on the way back to her home, we both were talking about that very point that she made.  That simple bag of chips provided her a snack, (one of her favorites) and provided her a really strong inside chuckle to herself while on a business flight.  It also provided her and I additional entertainment….HUGE entertainment as I drove her home. I cannot tell you how priceless that is and was.  My “job” is driving an Executive Car Service Town Car…..I do it because I love it. I do it because of customers like this one.

All the snacks and beverages in my car I provide personally and pay for at no charge to the customer.  Can I put a price on that bag of chips??  Absolutely Not!

A simple bag of chips.  Priceless.

Thank you Mrs. “C”! Thank you for sharing that story with me!

You made my month!!  Probably longer!  lolol!

I will tell this story for a long long time.

Thank you for being such an awesome person and customer!

:-))!
