Being consistently friendly has its rewards.
(Subway. Colorado Springs. I think this was my 4th time here).
I never mentioned getting lots of free stuff (bread, coffee cake…) at a Panera Bread in Albany, New York. Or lots of free stuff at Starbucks in Crescent City, CA… It does happen.
This was the first time I ever got a 10% discount at Subway though… Even though they have been giving me free drinks. “Have a water cup, but put whatever you want in it.“
