Five Bucks and a Smile

Imagine my dismay when I went to a Dairy Queen in another town, ordered my delightful treat - only to find it substandard. Soooo disappointing!! I ate a bit of the ice cream and threw the rest out. I have no idea what they did to that chocolate sauce, but it was horrible. I'm not one to complain, but the more I thought about it, the more I decided that someone needed to know.
I phoned their Customer Service department about a week later and talked to a very nice lady. It all ended on an upbeat note. I really didn't call to complain so much as I called to question the quality control of their franchises. Shouldn't I be able to rely on the fact that all DQ's had the same quality products? She agreed.
Yesterday I received a letter in the mail and a gift card for $5.00. It was a nice gesture, I didn't expect anything.
Just in case you all are wondering, you're not a customer at Dairy Queen. Nope!
You're a FAN!
... and the nice lady I spoke with, she's not a customer service representative, she's a Fan Relations Specialist!
In fact, when I looked it up, they even have a Blizzard Fan Club and they call their food 'FAN food' not 'FAST food.' You may have known this, but I didn't.
Lolol - Something about that just tickled my funny bone!
Five bucks and a smile, who could complain?
Have a good day, and do go visit Dairy Queen one more time before the weather starts to get chilly again! I'm sure you'll get a wave and a smile.
You are their fan, after all!
