Interstate All Battery Center Demonstrates Power of a Good Deed
Sometimes, all we need is someone by our side when times get hard.
Jackson, Miss., resident Ken Prewitt hit his hard time recently when a dead motorcycle stranded him and his 1996 Honda Shadow on the side of a Mississippi interstate in 95-degree heat. A co-worker was conveniently driving behind him on their commute but didn’t have a way to get Ken and his bike back home. They called another friend for help.
After an hour and a half of waiting, the friend arrived with a trailer and a car to rescue them. They headed to the Interstate All Battery Center® in nearby Ridgeland. The Interstate employees were in the process of testing batteries similar to Ken’s, and in turn decided that another model might suit his motorcycle better.
“I could tell they were being intentional about providing me with a quality product,” Ken said.
Even though it was 15 minutes after closing time, Ken and three employees were still working in the parking lot on the finishing touches. They stuck around just to make sure that everything worked out just right, Ken said. In the short time he spent at the Interstate All Battery Center, Ken was taken aback by the employees’ ability to chit chat and enjoy passing the time with him, even when they were off the clock.
For Ken, the inconvenience of this event was calmed by the people who went out of their way to make his night just a little bit easier.
“When something like this happens and people show up to help, it tells me I am doing better than worse,” Ken said.
