Braeton supervisor a star in Burger King's crown

On Saturday, June 25, 2016, I walked into the Burger King Braeton, Portmore, location to make a purchase. I was prepared to join the line and patiently wait my turn, although I am in the last few weeks of pregnancy, had swollen feet and left my already-exhausted husband in the vehicle with a screaming toddler in the middle of an exhaustion meltdown not fit for public display.

As I waited in line, the shift supervisor moved to the counter, pleasantly said excuse to the other customers ahead of me, and took my order. I was in and out in less than 10 minutes. This was a pleasant surprise, as I have been to other establishments and have been told by supervisors that I would have to be the one to beg the customers a 'skip', leaving me to their mercy, hence my practice to wait my turn.

When I was growing up, the elderly and expectant mothers were always taken care of, but I guess now is the age of 'every man for himself'.

I express my deepest appreciation to Ms C. McLarthy, the shift supervisor on duty that evening, for her wonderful service. To you, it may have been a simple extension of courtesy to a pregnant customer, but to us, it was so much more! Thank you!
