For a second day in a row, the elves returned from a fundraising lunch glistening. Was it new makeup? No.
One of the stay-at-the-office elves asked why the returnees were sparkling. Grumbled the wettest one, “We waited 45 minutes outside in 100-degree heat for our jalopy.”
At today’s event one female guest was so worn out after waiting 30+ minutes that a chair had to be provided. Queenie harrumphed that she would have demanded a throne. The sound of elves snickering was heard throughout the office.
Lesson learned: Dallas is a city that depends on and appreciates the various valet services. There are a heck of a lot of great ones that run their soles off in all types of conditions to accommodate guests. Why, they’re even known to drive home guests who are too encumbered to do it themselves. However, it only takes a bad valet experience to turn a hot event into a steamy one.
