    So I’m currently one of the few offices open in my district, and have dealt with some “issues” building up over last month. What a great way personalize who we talk to when calling you guys.

    In fact, I just spoke to Wendy. What a friendly face to match her friendly voice!!

    Keep up the good work. Couldn’t ask for a more friendly phone experience than Special Eyes. It’s that way every time i call you.
