sketchworthy service : darragh @ sherwin-williams

Having both spent our fair share of time employed in customer service, we really value meeting people working with the public who seem to genuinely care about their jobs and the people they come in contact with. We find that it's these individuals, not necessarily their products, that make us repeat customers. Starting today, we would like to introduce a new feature on this blog, occasionally highlighting these fine folks as we encounter them. Afterall, we feel that excellent work should be noted, valued and appreciated.

First up, Darragh, a salesman at the Sherwin-Williams on High Point Road in Greensboro. Last weekend we were in the store purchasing paint for the babies' room and he was so helpful. Not only did he help us make a budget-friendly selection, he expressed interest in our project and the pregnancy. It's such a nice feeling when someone is there to help, not just sell.

Want to take part in these posts of sketchworthy service? Feel free to use the comment section to note who you've encountered that deserves recognition, as well as where they work. Perhaps through the wonder of the world wide web, this public acknowledgement will get back to that person!

Helen--no the house painting got put on the back-burner with the baby news. Focusing on the inside now, outside later.

RC--You're welcome in the neighborhood any time!

Love this idea! Was thinking of compiling a list, myself, recently. And, yay for Darragh!

I have someone to give a virtual pat on the back! I don't know his name, but there is the kindest teenager working at the grocery store in the neighborhood. Everytime he's there and sees me unloading my stuff (and my kids!) into the car, he'll come take the empty cart back to the cart corral for me. He is the best, and he just did it again yesterday morning, when I was doing my pre-blizzard (yikes!) shopping. I have to get his name and write a note to the store on his behalf.

When the babies get here, Suzanne, you will love any person who goes out of their way to make your day even just the tinest bit easier.

Cheers to your paint specialist as well!

Hey Cabreras! I follow your blog religiously, and have for awhile. This post inspired me to write one of my own - I decided to buck up and conquer my fear of writing, since I have so many wonderful people in my life who teach me things, and that I'd like to thank!
