Maintenance crew goes the extra mile

Recently, I had maintenance performed on my car at the Ebensburg Walmart. The oil change was routine, but the service was far from routine.

I was blown away by the extraordinary care given to protect both the employees and the customers from COVID-19. Every possible precaution was taken to prevent viral transmission, including air sanitizing and placing disposable coverings on floor, seat and even the steering wheel.

How different than the attitude displayed inside the store, where customers were demonstrating their individual right to put others at risk. This kind of thinking leaves me wondering where we are headed as a nation.

My thanks to the Ebensburg service department, and to all those people who recognize that “we” is more important than “I.”

If everyone would realize that we need to protect each other, it would be a much kinder (and safer) world.
