My Akoha History #10 – Delivery Driver Memories

“Warm Fuzzy” was an Akoha Mission played on October 2, 2010, happening at random whilst I was at work.

And like it is for many other people I worked with, it was meeting new and interesting people and making them happy in turn. The customer spoken of in this mission is just one of the many.
