Great!
Great!

While I was shopping during one of the busiest days of the year (day before Christmas Eve), a young man (employee) approached a colleague for help finding an item the customer was looking for... it was obviously through his repetitive speech and actions this employee (young man) was either autistic or had another social disability. While it would have been easy to get frustrated or dismiss the man, the co-worker was kind and patient with him and dropped her current task to assist him with finding what the customer needed. This made me feel the business had not only hired someone with an obvious disability, they put him in a customer based setting and set expectations for this type of interaction between co-workers.
