Walk into cafe.
Get into line behind someone who is talking to one of the managers behind the register.
The manager sees my (new) travel mug, stops talking for a moment and says, “It’s OK, you can go ahead and fill it up. It’s on us today.”
I smile and say, “thanks.”
I fill up my mug and then walk to the table where I’ve placed my laptop bag. All the tables with outlets are taken.
The general manager, who is speaking with someone else at a table nearby, stops and says, “Don’t worry, we’ll be freeing up your table soon.”
I smile and say, “No worries. Thank you.”
I swear, some celebrities don’t get this kind of VIP treatment.
I wish all people treated their “regulars” this well.
