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.
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?
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!
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!
