No Soup for You! Tales of Amazing Customer Service

Customer ServiceMany, many years ago, when our now four adult kids were wee ones, Sue and I would take the family on adventurous vacations, typically involving tents and sleeping bags. When we look back at those days in the late eighties and early nineties, we scratch our heads and ask whether we were insane. We definitely wouldn’t do it now as older Baby Boomers.
