Before I tell you my gratitude, I have to explain two things:
- Last week my husband hurt his leg skiing. It is not major requiring crutches or a cast, but it is a painful and annoying calf tear. He is limping and certain positions make his leg uncomfortable.
- We have a 4 concert subscription for Carnegie Hall. While we normally have the same seats for all of our concerts, for some reason, we did not have our normal seats. We had seats with so little leg room that even I at slightly over five feet, could not sit normally.
Dilemma: My Husband could not sit with his leg in these seats and the concert is sold out.
I asked the ticket captain if there was anything they could do for my husband so he didn’t injure his leg further. After a few minutes, the ticket taker told me to go down one level and they would figure something out.
There is a side aisle just big enough to put two chairs (while leaving the aisle clear in case of emergency)…which they did. The chair was barstool height, which was actually perfect for my husband to keep his leg in a good position.
I am grateful to the ushers and captains at Carnegie Hall for coming up with a creative solution to help us out!
