Who said the American worker doesn't care any more Jackie Braun sure does

Sweet Krispy Kreme worker surprises man on quest for rejection
By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News | The Sideshow – 6 hrs ago

A man's quest to overcome his fear of rejection by making at least one crazy request a day for 100 days was throttled last week when a Krispy Kreme employee accepted his order for five doughnuts linked together in the colors and shape of the Olympic symbol.

"It's only my third day and I have already failed," Jia Jiang wrote on his 100 Days of Rejection Therapy blog. "But I did so with such amazement and happiness."

When the 31-year-old approached the register to make his "specialized" doughnut order, Jackie Braun, a shift leader at an Austin, Texas, Krispy Kreme, asked him when he would need it.

"In the next 15 minutes," Jiang replied.


and later in the article

"Let me see what I can do," she said.

Fifteen minutes later, she emerged with a Krispy Kreme box with the glazed Olympic ring arrangement inside—and, astonishingly, did not charge Jiang for it.

"It wasn't exactly what he wanted," Braun told Yahoo News. "To my eyes, it wasn't perfect, so I didn't think I should charge him for it. It was the best I could do in the time allotted."

Its a feel good story and it still goes to show that yes people are still nice and do care.

1. I wonder if big bosses are going to crack down on the local management now.

CEOs would likely want to discourage time-wasting on the job, such as this.
Sorry, I'm a cynic.
