Service delights

Recently I had the problem of a toilet cistern running water into the pan.

Over the years I have replaced the rubbers in cisterns successfully myself. This being a more modern one and more complicated, I decided it would be wise to take it to Reece Plumbing Supplies in Myaree.

I am 81 and it was not an easy task getting the cistern to the shop.

However, by putting the heavy cistern on my walker, my wife and I managed to get the cistern from the car into the store.

Quick as a flash the new parts were on the counter. I then asked the shop assistant how I would get the cistern apart.

I must have had a blank look on my face.

The next thing I knew was a young bloke who also was an employee of the store took the cistern and the parts and said he would fix it.

After a short time, the young man came back with the job done and he put it in the boot of our car.

I wanted to shake his hand with money hidden in mine as I appreciated his help in a time of need; he looked at me and refused.

I paid for the parts and left grateful for the help I had received.

I take my hat off to all the friendly staff and thank you for good, old-fashioned service.
