Trader Joe’s Employees Dance To Cheer Child
Any mother knows the stress of having a crying child in the grocery store. When a toddler started having a meltdown in the checkout line, Trader Joe’s employees jumped in to make the boy smile. They spontaneously started singing and dancing together, while still checking out and bagging groceries. The toddler was so surprised that he stopped crying, and shoppers throughout the store also enjoyed the performance. A video of the performance was shared on Instagram and Facebook and viewed hundreds of thousands of times.
Chick-Fil-A Employee Saves Customer’s Life
Customer service involves paying attention to customers and noticing when things don’t seem right. That’s exactly what one Chick-fil-A employee in California did earlier this year when he noticed a customer acting strangely in the parking lot from his position in the drive-through window. The man was on the ground going into cardiac arrest when the employee named Tauya performed chest compressions and directed others to call 911. The man survived, and many credit Tauya’s observation and quick action for saving his life. The story went viral on Facebook, where thousands of people shared positive thoughts and feedback.
CFA Hero! Last week while working the drive thru at Chick-Fil-A, our team lead Tauya Nenguke, noticed something suspicious going on across the parking lot. He handed his iPad for orders to one on his co-workers and sprinted across the parking lot to find a man down with his scared friends frantically not knowing what to do.
Tauya immediately took over the situation and started chest compressions on the unresponsive young man before having someone call 911. The man survived and was later taken by paramedics. The EMT stated that if it wasn’t for his quick action, this young man might not have survived.
Tauya has made us proud for his quick action and willingness to help someone who had a need and says the incident was confirmation of his calling to become a RN!
