I may surprise you one night with one of YOUR
"All Time Favorites!"
I think it's safe to say, "Everybody hates change." Change can be anything from your favorite ice cream flavor no longer being available to the legendary George Jones no longer being with us and passing just weeks before an Upstate appearance.
It's also the little things that are really "no big deal," but make you realize "change" is always certain.
For years when I wanted pizza for supper, I went to the same pizza shop. I could always count on Dennis or Curtis to be there....and sometimes both of them. Dennis was an ol' rock and roller who many times served as Curtis's straight man. Curtis was full of laughs anytime I stopped in including turning off the lights and locking the doors, wearing a Halloween Costume and pranking me, peering around corners and more.
I realize there is going to be turnover in the restaurant business. In the past two visits over the past month I didn't see either Dennis or Curtis or even any familiar employee faces. I'm guessing they sold the franchaise.
Pizza is dough, sauce, toppings, and an oven...but the relationships you have with your customers is what keeps bringing them back. I'll miss the laughs a couple of times a month, but it makes me know that giving one hundred percent to a customer makes a difference. I know Dennis and Curtis had bad days over the years, but it never showed. Wherever they are, we can wish them the best and take a page from their book.
