The agent grabs all his stuff, goes over to his little table and swabs it for explosives—including his hands—and says he's good to go. As this travel nightmare continues, it turns out that his laptop was left in one those nice plastic tubs. Robby gets off the plane in Cincinnati totally wiped out, arrives at home...throws his suitcase down, gets ready to setup his laptop, then realizes it's gone. That's not good!
Robby thinks, "Who do I know in Phoenix that can help?" The first person that comes to mind is Kim Weaver from Geiger. He messages her on Facebook and explains the situation asking for her help. Without hesitation she said, "Of course, what can I do?" And she did it. Kim took some of her Friday afternoon, drove to the Phoenix International Airport, went to the TSA lost and found department in terminal four located on the 2nd floor, identified herself and retrieved Robby's laptop. She boxed it up with extra padding, drove to FedEx, and shipped it out overnight for his next stop in California.
Robby notes that this is what our Industry is all about. "Partners whom we very seldom get the chance to see face-to-face because we are all across the country are willing to take time out of their busy day to do something like this for a fellow industry partner."
Obviously, Robby greatly appreciated what Kim did. Our industry relationships are special!
Through the years, my colleagues have been through personal triumphs and tragedies-births, deaths, sickness and the growth of families.
Social media enables us to follow life's journeys. And we support our friends during these journeys—wherever they take us. The times we get to get together in person at the Expo and regional events are special.
