Doing the right thing

June 10, 2020

My dad just called to tell me about something that happened to him at the lumberyard. He said a guy walked up to him and asked him if he was D..... Simpson. Of course, my dad responded, yes. He proceeded to say you don’t know me, but years ago, I came to your shop and asked if I could sand a tabletop. He said he was surprised when dad let him use our equipment to sand his top. He told dad, I thought that was awfully nice of you and wanted you to know.

 

Dad asked me if I remembered him, but I really don’t. Doing that kind of thing for people was just par for the course for us. It’s how we lived and worked then and now.

 

I guess the moral of the story is sometimes doing the right thing can leave an impression on someone. You just never know when. I hope the gentleman learned a lesson and has been carrying it forward.
