Undoubtedly the best part of the job working at Black Forest Hill is meeting the wonderful people from all over this great world.
A recent occasion will remain in our memories for a long long time. Visitors from all corners of Australia came to Toowoomba for our Annual Carnival of Flowers Event.
Many people were elderly and usually book group bus tours and accommodation.
One lovely couple came all the way from Cessnock in NSW. They arrived at our shop by bus and instantly fell in love with a beautiful Grandfather Clock. So much so, that they paid a deposit and said they would arrange the remainder when they returned home. They hadn't planned to purchase a clock and didn't bring a lot of money with them.
The next morning the lady rang to say, "Please pack our Grandfather Clock into a carton, we will now be taking it home on the bus with us. We will be out this afternoon to collect it." The clock was promptly packed and ready for the couple when they returned.
At 4.30pm the bus arrived and we set about finalizing the payment before loading the clock. Up walked the Bus Driver and said, "I will be paying the balance for the clock, the owners can sort out payment when we return to Cessnock." What a true gentleman! He obviously loves his job and enjoys helping others. He saved the couple paying extra freight charges and even insisted he would set the clock up for them when they arrived home.
