Sweet Service Award goes to Carrol Boyes, Sour Service Award goes to Engen Kloof Street!

The Sweet Service Award goes to Carrol Boyes, for its extreme generosity in delivering to my home a collection of their Carrol Boyes products as a Christmas gift. I had only got to know the company and some of its executives this year when it launched its wonderful chocolate boxes. They are a kind, friendly, and approachable company. 

The Sour Service Award goes to Engen on Kloof Street. It has been my favorite petrol station to date. I was annoyed when a staff member from the garage shop came to my car window whilst another attendant was tending to my car, trying to hard sell me items from their shop. I rarely buy there as the prices are very much higher. I asked to speak to a manager, and she took 15 minutes to come to the car. She barely listened to my complaint about it and was very dismissive about it.  I asked her for a number of the owner, and she told me to come inside the shop and fetch it!
