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!
