"I went to Einstein's today for an oil change and the service was great. They even fixed my light bulb for me! However, while we were there waiting my baby started to fuss so I decided to feed her (breastfeed her that is). All of the men there did not bat one eye at me. They didn't look twice, or make me feel awkward or uncomfortable. So not only did they get my minivan all fixed up they showed 100 percent respect for me while I was feeding my girl. Good Job guys and thanks for making me feel welcome and comfortable!"
