Tonight I had a lovely couple come in and dine with us on their 18th year anniversary. They sat down and Shane asked if we had any champagne because they were celebrating this special day. They were laughing and having a blast and I knew I had to make there night a little extra special. I picked up their tab for them and Heather started crying and thanking me, she just needed to give me a hug. This extra special gift to them truly made their night that much more of a special time. I wished them many more years of pure bliss because they looked like they were in the new relationship love giddiness. They are happy to pay it forward to someone and share there story.
Tonight as I was walking into work I saw a dad and his son get out of their vehicle and heard the young man scream and I quote “YES T-Bones Woo Hoo. T-Bones T-Bones T-Bones! This made me smile because he clearly was so excited to be coming into diner this evening! I knew from that moment I wanted to make his night extra special. After they were done eating I went over and told this young man that I heard his happy chant in the parking lot and he seemed to get embarrassed. I told him when I was younger that I had the same reaction he did when I would go to Hudson with my parents! I gave him a gift certificate to bring his dad out to dinner and also a pair of our awesome kids sunglasses! He almost screamed again and was beyond thrilled… Moments like this is truly what makes me so proud to work for this amazing company and see how many smiles we can give someone!
Tonight I decided to do a Random Act of Kindness to these wonderful folks Mario and Louise. Every time they are here they are so happy and such a fun loving couple. Mario told me it was his birthday and I knew he needed a present from us. Thank you for being such valued guests to us and we look forward to seeing you again. He is so happy to Pay It Forward to someone of his choosing.
Today I had a lady named Donna in that we see from time to time with her husband. Today she was in with a different gentleman. I went over and asked hows she’s doing and she introduced me to her ex husband. She then proceeded to tell me that he is about to get back surgery this Monday. They are still close and she wanted to help him out. This to me was absolutely amazing as you don’t see this anymore. I bought both of their meals and wished him good luck on his surgery. They may be giving the Pay It Forward gift card to a nurse of his!
Today we had the owner of The Bagel Cafe in and he always takes such great care of our staff when we order food from them so I figured it was time for us to pay him forward and I bought him and his son their lunch! He was so thrilled to have this happen to him and thanked me. I asked him to Pay if forward and give someone the bonus gift card to make their day just so much brighter.
Yesterday I saw a nice family come in for lunch and this looked like their first time celebrating Fathers Day together.. This dad had such a beautiful young daughter and she was just too cute.. I approached them and wished him a Happy Fathers Day and it was his first! I told them well you are lucky because today I am going to give you a 25.00 Gift certificate to come in for your next visit. This made there day just that much better. Their daughter Elizabeth was making googly sounds and blowing bubbles. I knew I picked the right person to make their day better! Love doing this!
Last night I had a nice couple in for a late night dinner around 9:30 and I thought they would be a perfect candidate for Random Act of Kindness. Instead of me approaching the guest, I asked if the bartender Amanda could approach them, thinking it would be great to surprise them. They were so thrilled to have their food on the house that they took a picture of the bartenders and said they were going to post it on T-BONES Facebook. The stayed for a bit longer and got another round of drinks and enjoyed their night out together. They informed Amanda they were happy to Pay It Forward!
Tonight it was brought to my attention that we had a couple in the dining room dining for their first time at T-BONES. I thought this was a perfect opportunity to go and say thank you for coming in for dinner and giving us a try. They really enjoyed our turkey dinners and I told them they needed to try one of our homemade desserts so they had our coconut creme pie. They actually live in Michigan so they were told by their son to come give it a go. I was telling them that we have our sister stores CJ’s and Copper Door. They had no idea Copper Door was affiliated with us. They went to dinner there 2 nights prior and absolutely loved their experience. When they come back to town they will be back to both our locations. I ended up buying their check and sent them away with a gift certificate to Pay it Forward to someone before they left the following day.
Tonight I had a gentleman call in a takeout and he was just so nice and polite and from that point on I decided he would be the right choice for my Random Act of Kindness!!! Upon arrival he showed up with his adorable little girl and was just floored that he was chosen for this. I paid for his two sandwiches and asked that he Pays it Forward to someone they think deserves the random act of kindness!
