Apparently, much like EF Hutton, when I talk … people listen.
You may remember Monday’s post about my experience at Organic to Go in McPherson Square. Basically, the guy behind the counter observed that I, Jacque Jo, in fact love delicious organic salad.
I never think when I float these things out here than anybody other than my closest friends and my Mom read this, but I was wrong.
Today, I got an e-mail from the PR firm that represents them in Washington apologizing to me for the guy at the counter. I have to give them mega praise for doing that. They didn’t have to do that. I mean, who the hell am I? Just some liberal conservative misfit who rants and likes the well-honed art of the open letter. I never thought anybody took it seriously.
However, this really nice girl I e-mailed back and forth with assured me they would work to better train their employees on how to behave, say, in a case like mine where the box is laden with lots of delicious organic vegetables to make an epic salad that is to be heartily enjoyed.
I assured her I would still be going to Organic to Go because well, it’s convenient, and it’s really just good. I know if I want salad, it’s there.
But more so, I think I learned a thing or two about “social media” and “Web 2.0” today, you know? Somehow, through the power of the Internets, someone reached out to address my complaint without me even asking anybody to address it. That’s kinda cool in a “wow, I have readers” sort of way.
