Gas stations from the past:
This one is not too old, that is a 1954 Chevy he is gassin up!
For today, Friday from NC:
We paid down on a trailer as I said awhile back. The closing was to be online. That required notary and wiring funds at closing. Sherry called for two days to see what the process would be at the bank. She was put on hold every time, and then after a while it hung up.
So once the papers were received and printed. We signed and initialed where needed without notary. Then to the bank which is locked with a note saying call for appointment. So I knocked on the door. About that time a man came up and stood back. Sherry asked if he had an appointment. He said, “Yes, I called yesterday and had no problem.” Sherry explained what had happened to her with the phone. When the manager came to the door he told us it would be impossible without an appointment.
He turned to the man and asked if he had an appointment. He said yes but mine is not an emergency, I give my appointment to these people. The manager was a little bumfuzzled, and said I will be right back. After a couple minutes he came out and told us all to come in that he thought he could work it all out. He did.
It is a breath of fresh air to meet someone like that gentleman. Sherry said to me, ‘that is something like we would do,’ and it is. BUT not much makes you feel better than having contact with such a person. It still makes me feel good.
WE have some wonderful folk in this country. NOT everything is gloom and doom.
