You will no doubt recall my frustration when a camper wheeled over my tulip bed. It is still to wet to go boulder hunting in the woods and my tulip bed has remained unprotected. On this past Sunday as I was gazing mindlessly out the door of my store and watching all the campers leave. I was humming my special song (....it's the most wonderful day of the week.....all the campers are leaving, and my heart is heaving a sigh of relief......). I was in my happy place, anticipating closing the store early and spending some time in my sewing room in a fit of creation. I saw a big semi slowing and then coming in the entrance drive. He ignored my stop sign and gunned his engine as he turned left towards the exit drive.......... and cutting it way too short, pulled his trailer over my tulip bed. I was incensed. It was a Werners truck.
Being the clever one that I am, I looked them up online and whipped out an e-mail to the company. I told them that I did not mind their driver using my more than adequate driveway and parking lot to turn around; but that I did mind him driving through my tulip bed. I went on to say that I doubted I would even get a response, but that I wanted them to know that the name Werners would now have a negative impression as far as I was concerned.
I did get a response the very next day saying that my e-mail had been forwarded to the correct department. I was satisfied that someone was reading my letter and promptly forgot about it.....well except mentioning to he who hunts boulders to get cracking. So, imagine my surprise today when I opened my e-mail and found that they would be sending an adjuster from their insurance company to assess the damage! Who knew that some companies still take responsibility for the actions of those in their employ!
So, if ever you would need a trucking company, let me recommend Werners!
