I started in the mattress business almost 12 years ago in the Chicago area. I managed several stores throughout Chicagoland and was in Boubonnais, IL, where I opened a store for Bedding Experts, just before I moved to the Seattle area.
I LOVE what I do and have helped a lot of people with their sleep issues and back issues over the years. At Bourbonnais, not long before I moved here I had a couple of doctors walk in together. I had helped both of their families find good mattresses for deep sleep and great back support, but I didn't know that they knew each other. One of their wives had sent them in to buy more of the awesome pillows I had sold them and we wound up laughing and joking with each other for a bit. When I was ringing them up the one buying the pillows said, (you have to read this in a Pakistani accent) "Dabe, yourr a bad doctorr." I said, " Aww, why am I a bad doctor?" He said, "No, no - yourr a bed doctorr." Then we all laughed.
I took it as quite a compliment that a real doctor called me a bed doctor because of the way I had helped him and his family with their mattress needs.
Truly, I LOVE people and I LOVE what I do... Thank you to all of my great customers, many of which have kinda become friends.
