People Who Connect People: Andy

Standing in the Verizon Wireless store he runs on 9th St., Andy is like a party host. There is a couple hanging out on the couch, eating lunch.

"Are these friends of yours?" I asked.

He shook his head, no. "People hang out here, I don't know why," he said. "People have a bizarre connection to their phones, I don't know why." He might not understand it, but he shrugs and smiles and makes people feel at home while he helps them connect.

And that's why I gave Andy a gold star.

  1. Retail workers get a bad rap. Andy sounds like a doll and deserving of a gold star. What a nice little story. Thanks again Steph for making my day!
