The Sweet Service Award goes to Mynhardt’s Kitchen in Paarl for its professional delivery of a Fruitcake, to publicise its charity drive to sell 1200 Festive Fruitcakes, to support disadvantaged children in Paarl, and frail and disadvantaged elderly persons in Montagu. Not only did I receive a Fruitcake, but the goodie box contained the non-perishable ingredients which one would use to bake a Fruitcake too. In addition, a recipe card was sent to bake a Fruitcake, as well as tips on how to store and serve a Fruitcake. The most professional presentation which I have seen in a long time, and all for a good cause.
The Sour Service Award goes to Discovery Insure, for a staff member calling me last week, asking if I would like to buy their car insurance without an excess. I would have expected her to have done her homework before calling, as I am already a Discovery Insure client without an excess! Discovery is so professional in many ways yet is so poor in its customer service, especially when interacting with their call centre staff.
