An Interesting Story

Never underestimate your Clients’ Complaint, no matter how funny it might seem!

This is a real story that happened between the customer of Premier car manufacturer.

 and its Customer-Care Executive………
A complaint was received by the customer care Division of The company :
‘This is the second time I have written to you, and I don’t blame you for

 not answering me, because I sounded crazy, but it is a fact that we have a

 tradition in our family of Ice-Cream for dessert after dinner each night,

 but the kind of ice cream varies so, every night, after we’ve eaten, the

 whole family votes on which kind of ice cream we should have and I drive

 down to the store to get it. It’s also a fact that I recently purchased your

 new Car and since then my trips to the store have created a

 problem…..You see, every time I buy a vanilla ice-cream, when I start back from the

 store my car won’t start. If I get any other kind of ice cream, the car

 starts just fine. I want you to know I’m serious about this question, no

 matter how silly it sounds “What is there about a Pontiac that makes it not

 start when I get vanilla ice cream, and easy to start whenever I get any

 other kind?” The President of company was understandably skeptical about the

 letter, but sent an Engineer to check it out anyway.
The latter was surprised to be greeted by a successful, obviously well

 educated man in a fine neighborhood. He had arranged to meet the man just

 after dinner time, so the two hopped into the car and drove to the ice

 cream store. It was vanilla ice cream that night and, sure enough, after

 they came back to the car, it wouldn’t start.

The Engineer returned for three more nights. The first night, they got

 chocolate. The car started. The second night, he got strawberry. The car

 started. The third night he ordered vanilla. The car failed to start.
Now the engineer, being a logical man, refused to believe that this man’s

 car was allergic to vanilla ice cream. He arranged, therefore, to continue

 his visits for as long as it took to solve the problem. And toward this end

 he began to take notes: He jotted down all sorts of data: time of day, type

 of gas uses, time to drive back and forth etc.
In a short time, he had a clue: the man took less time to buy vanilla than

 any other flavor. Why? The answer was in the layout of the store. Vanilla,

 being the most popular flavor, was in a separate case at the front of the

 store for quick pickup. All the other flavors were kept in the back of the

 store at a different counter where it took considerably longer to check out

 the flavor.
Now, the question for the Engineer was why the car wouldn’t start when it

 took less time. E..ureka – Time was now the problem – not the vanilla ice

 cream!!!! The engineer quickly came up with the answer: “vapor lock”.
It was happening every night; but the extra time taken to get the other

 flavors allowed the engine to cool down sufficiently to start. When the man

 got vanilla, the engine was still too hot for the vapor lock to dissipate.
Even crazy looking problems are sometimes real and all problems seem to be

 simple only when we find the solution, with cool thinking.
Nothing is “IMPOSSIBLE” without putting a sincere effort. What really matters is your attitude and your perception.
Moral of the Story “Try to Fix the Bug , instead of making it as a Known


Real Great Story!
