got a new tree today! When the utility company cut down our venerable but
half-dead maple several months ago to make room for their street work, I was
upset. But they promised to give us a new one when the work was finished.
time passed and the work took forever to get done, I became skeptical; I
thought they’d forget about it and I’d have to make phone calls and wait and
hope they’d eventually get around to it. But yesterday I found a spot on our
curbside grass dug up, and this morning there it was--our new tree!
course it’s a far cry from the old maple that I used to be able to see from our
bedroom window, but it’s going to be fun to watch it grow over the years.
companies actually do keep their promises.
