Nice philosophy. Providing a service & being respectful to everyone involved at all levels. You might think that would be a no brainer. I would guess there's a stack of people that prefer some of the old models: Burn um and turn um (common retail & sports model) Resume beatings till moral improves. Work um like a rented mule. Drive um em like a rental car.
And some of these people think they're good Christians. Whatever that's supposed to mean. Reminds me of the old definition of a hypocrite: Someone who's not themselves on Sunday. Ba Dump bump (cymbal crash)
Love the story Pat

Maybe the "friendly and Supportive" business climate in Texas has something to do with business philosophy that is innovative and customer fucused. I don't see anyone wanting start up operations in the antibusiness climate of Ohio.
