Last night my husband, Chris, and I were out at a local restaurant enjoying a low-key weeknight dinner date. We were talking about the week’s events when he started to tell me about how his co-worker’s car had broken down the day before. He, being a pretty serious “car person,” volunteered to meet him to jump-start the car. After scouring his car for a set of jumper cables, he realized that there weren’t any. He set out to the floor of his company’s workshop to find anyone who might have a set of jumper cables. Much to my (and his) surprise, only one person had a road safety kit!
As he started to describe the kit to me, I couldn’t help but smile. It was the Leed’s Highway Companion Gift Set! He couldn’t believe it had jumper cables, a flashlight, tire gauge, blanket – even warning triangles for the road! He LOVED it! I was thrilled that one of the products we sell was able to help my husband and his co-worker.
As the hot summer sun beats down this summer, think about those poor souls who break down in the heat. A complete highway safety set is a great way to show your employees, customers and anyone else in your life, that you care about their wellbeing. Whether you go for the deluxe kit that came in so handy for my husband and his co-worker, a smaller kit with just the necessities or even a safety hammer that can break a windshield, you provide recipients with valuable tools and peace of mind on the road.
The moral I learned from this story? Don’t assume that someone else will have jumper cables if and when you need them. And needless to say, we’ll be purchasing a few of the Highway Companion Sets!
Happy and safe traveling this summer!
