Only their mothers could show members of the Petroleum Club more love than Maitre d’ Tommie Wilson. Mom knows your favorite dish. So does Tommie. Mom knows your favorite dessert. So does Tommie. Mom never forgets your birthday. Neither does Tommie. There is one difference. Mom will always call you by the name she gave you. Tommie never will, even though he insist you call him by his first name. “Hi, Mr. Wilson, I’m Rany Moore.” “Mr. Wilson? That’s my daddy. He’s six feet under. Please call me Tommie, Mr. Moore.”
