Runde’s says hello to Kelly and Cole

Kelly Francois and her 7-month old son Cole visited Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque today.  Kelly is very familiar to most of us here at Runde’s because she used to work here for nearly 2 years.  She now works at Dubuque Data Services as an administrative assistant and she’s doing very well for herself.  Kelly enjoys stopping by the dealership every once in awhile, but this is one visit that she would have forgone if she’d had her druthers.  You see Kelly’s boyfriend, Dirt (his legitimate nickname), was backing up her car and backed over a metal fire pit.   So Kelly came in and had Mike Runde write up a bodyshop estimate for the repairs.  We sat down and chatted with Kelly and Cole while they waited for the write-up.

It was good to visit with Kelly and Cole.  They were met with smiles with every Runde employee and owner that they ran into today.  Kelly said that she was going to make Dirt pay for the damage to the back bumper.  I just hope he was sitting down whe she handed him the estimate.
