LETTER: Praise for a hard worker


Top marks for all McDonald’s counter staff, always polite and ready with friendly smiles.

In saying so, there is one employee who particularly stands out. He has the unenviable job of general maintenance and in a busy location like McDonald’s this calls for a special kind of dedication.

Sweeping the lot, emptying garbage containers, table maintenance, window cleaning are just some of his responsibilities and this is in all weather.

I left the restaurant the other day, rain coming down in sheets and there is this man, on hands and knees in the parking lot checking out a problem a young woman was obviously having with her car. If there was an honour role for special workers he would make it in spades.

The man’s name is Bruce and there is not a more diligent worker around. McDonald’s is lucky to have him.

Please, next time you visit Hope’s big M, make a point of saying “Hi Bruce” and just watch his face light up. Seems to work 24/7 so good chance Bruce will be on hand and doing his thing.

We all need a little recognition every now and then, especially when it is richly deserved.
