I took a flight to Minneapolis from Maryland with my company's President for the most important meeting of my career thus far. I stayed up all night rehearsing and waiting for the graphic people to send the last portion of my presentation, so I did not have any copies printed. In addition I recently requested a brand new MAC computer for my company laptop, and I planned to show my presentation on the projection screen..After realizing I left the cord, I went to front desk to ask if they had a loaner, of course they had one for a PC and not a MAC. The guy at the front desk saw my desperation and offered to send me in the hotel car to the store. There were not any MAC stores close by. So the gentlemen then did the unthinkable and offered to drive home and get his PC for me to borrow..and he did..After finding out his charger was missing he went to Radio Shack to purchase a new charger..They sold them the wrong cord :( But after that he went to the President of my company and apologized for not carrying the MAC cord!! He even took the blame..My presentation went horrible and the look on my bosses face made me want to jump out the window!!!! but I still appreciated him going above and beyond and making my emergency his urgency and even taking the blame for me not to look like a complete failure to my boss!!! I later found out he was the General Manger Chris Hutchinson!! Chris and his awesome team made the worst day of my career a little better..
