Chauffeur Saves The Day With His Shoes

Posted on April 27, 2011 by LCT Magazine

CUSTOMER SAVIOR: Over the years, LCT Magazine has accumulated numerous tales of outstanding customer service, where chauffeurs improvise to help a client in a jam. However, a recent act of kindness at RMA Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation in Rockville, Md., sets a new standard. . .

RMA shared this customer e-mail testimonial with LCT, which speaks for itself:

"Good morning RMA, just wanted to take a moment to compliment one of your chauffeurs, Mr. Cecil Smith. I attended a retirement ceremony Friday at Ft. Myers army base in Rosslyn, VA, where my friend's son, who by the way was the person retiring, forgot his dress shoes. While in your vehicle just joking, she asked Cecil what size shoes he wears. Well, to make a long story short, to save the program her son ended up in Cecil's shoes (LOL).

I watched Mr. Smith take off his shoes and slip on some gym shoes out side the van in the rain smiling and laughing the whole time that’s what made me ask the question......WHY IN THE WORLD IS THE DRIVER CHANGING HIS SHOES HERE? AND WHEN I HEARD THE WHOLE STORY I HAD TO TELL YOU ABOUT YOUR EMPLOYEE, AND HIS GREAT PERSONALITY AND FUN LOVING ATTITUDE!  In closing, if I’m ever in Washington, D.C. again, RMA is my company and Cecil is my chauffeur!!"

What's that old saying? "Don't judge a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes?"

-- Martin Romjue, LCT editor
