    service station

    Please make the following in bold clear for me.

    1. Timberland workers can walk many pathways to volunteer: * Forty hours of paid service leave annually. * A "service station" in the lobby at corporate headquarters to promote volunteer opportunities.

    I don't think the above refers to a petrol station. What is it?

    2. It is inspiring to meet a corporate worker who acts as if only heaven can wait.

    When do you use the above expression?

    Thank you.

    Re: service station

    Thank you for the answer.

    The quote is from the book Saving the Corporate Soul by David Batstone.

    And I'm still confused on #2. Based on your explanation, I have rewritten it as "it is inspiring to meet a corporate worker who acts as if he or she can never wait for anything." I can understand this literally, but I don't know why he or she can be inspiring.
