I am the “yo-yo guy” at my store. I am on the management team at Spencers Gifts, and I always have at least two throws on me. I have written emails to the ceo of spencers asking spencers to carry yo-yos- and I have customers that come to see me throw in store. (I got permission from my CEO to throw to try and pull customers in the store when its empty)
Well we just had a guy leave the company cause he moved waaay up north after being with us for several years. On the last two days I worked with him I brought in an “extra” throw for him to use. I wanted to say thanks to him in my own special way for his dedicated service, blah blah etc.
Well, he admitted that he has been coveting my throws for some time and was very excited to try throwing. Dude yo-yoed for HOURS both days. If we had any kind of lull (and the mall has been ultra dead for weeks) he was tossing around the yo-yo. He said he was going to pick one of his own up and start yo-playing on his own as we left the store at closing together for the last time. Made me feel great that I spread the yo-yo love to another person.
So, I ask you for your “yo-evangelism” stories! The “who and how” stories of you spreading the word of “Yo” to other lucky people who have joined our ranks! I love a good story!
