Walk into cafe. Notice the long line. Put laptop bag down…
Turn around to discover a cashier standing there holding an empty cup out for me…
“Here. This is my rewards coffee. I’m not going to use it. You can have it.”
I smile and say thank you VERY much. And then she disappears.
Just like that.
Some days I question my effectiveness. Moments like this are always a reminder that I must be doing something right.
At least the coffee gods think so.
*And no, not the same cashier as the other day.
**And the coffee is self-serve — thus, the empty cup.
