Well, picked up the mail today, and there were two envelopes from United Airlines.
My first thought was “Oh heck, my wife and I have just been demoted to ‘lowly 1K’ again!”
That has happened 3x before, and it’s painful, but happens.
Well, with trepidation, I opened my envelope (planning to burn my wife’s, if we were dropped back to 1K), and with shaking hands began to examine its contents, and to read.
Well, it was NOT what I expected, though who knows if I will get the one, that I dread?
Inside the envelop is a bi-fold card, with pockets. In one, there is a Holiday card from Mr Munoz. In the other, there are 3 cards.
Those have lines to be filled in, with a bit of info??
I read some more.
Those cards are to be filled in by the lax, and handed to an employee, who has done a good job!
What do those employees get, when they redeem the cards from lax? A jab in the eye with a sharp stick? A monetary bonus? Dispensation from attending Monday team meetings? Invitations to the US “Tower” in Chicago? Well, I have no clue.
However, I feel that the general concept is a good one. I often fire off kudos for good staff, and more often than complaints for botched flights, or broken IFE... Atill, I am remiss in acknowledging all good employees. These cards will be used. Unfortunately, we only got 3 each, and normally, I could use 12.
Whatever, a nice gesture, and I already have my recipients picked out.
