Old Pics- A Good News Story



These photos of the SunTrust Bank in our downtown, were taken last year. This Story in our newspaper today is about  the Branch Manager of this bank going above and beyond the call of duty.

A 90 year old lady parked in a tow away zone and went in the bank, her car was towed. Her knight in shining armor is what she called the Manager when instead of  calling her a cab to take her 8 miles to pick up her car, he drove her there himself.    Note: 8 miles in Bradenton is about half an hour drive.

When they reached the tow shop, it was Cash only. He drove her to an ATM to get the cash and made sure it was one that would not charge her for using it and back to the towed car where he waited until she drove off in her car...

There are Still Good People In this World. Thank you Bill Beverly for helping this lady..

that was very nice of him but if he wanted to above and beyond he could have paid what she owed for the tow, just saying :)

Excellent customer service which is rare now.

Felicia said...

at 90 years of age I surely would have thought they should give her the car back without paying for it.

Kuddos to the bank manager though.
