Doc has discovered the secret to getting the best possible customer service at the businesses that he frequents in our small town. The secret is donuts. Every so often he drops into our car mechanic's shop, our dentist's office, the doggy day care, the eye doctor, the veterinarian and several other places with a box of donuts. In addition he knows that Debbie at the dentist especially likes cinnamon rolls, Brian at the car repair place prefers apple fritters, and that the women at the doggy day care favor glazed donuts all around.
It is amazing how much the workers in these places appreciate this little gift and as a result Doc is treated as a most preferred customer when he needs the service of one of these businesses. I know, I know, donuts are not a healthy thing to eat, but it sure is surprising to see how much good will a little sugar can create.
