An Addition to Replace a Subtraction
We 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.
As 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!
Of 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.
Sometimes companies actually do keep their promises.
