No Empty Seats


The ‘all staff’ meeting was underway, we are a good ten minutes into the agenda. Due to a reason beyond their control, a team member had to arrive a few minutes late. He scouted the room and found no empty seats,  so he stood quietly in the back.

A few moments late a fellow team member also stood up but he left the room. It was odd to see someone leave the meeting. However, their return was quick, and not empty-handed but carrying a chair. He made a straight line to the standing employee presenting the chair to him.

The gesture was a simple one, but it clearly demonstrates one of Brindlee Mountains core values: display a spirit of service to customers, community and each other.

Thank you, Butch, for living out our values.


Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. Philippians 2:3-4
