Have you ever noticed how easy it can be to please people sometimes? Here's a for instance for ya:
Each morning, I drag myself out of my super-comfy bed to inhale airborne caffeine and with a smile ask over and over again, "Good morning! How are you today? The regular?" Usually the customer grunts, yawns, or has a major throat-clearing session before answering "Yes" and handing over their $3.51 and Frequent Fluid Card.
After this point in the transaction, there are either two reasons that a person will smile:
1) They are walking out the door and have taken a few sips of their much needed morning caffeine; OR
2) They have earned a free coffee!
Now, usually the latter of the two will result in the greatest mood shift, but let's be honest here, who's wouldn't be altered at the news of a free coffee? It would certainly make my day!
We leave early tomorrow morning for a camping trip to Lake Macconahey in Nebraska (yes, Nebraska). We are going with a group of midwesterners we have become friends with and needed a good dose of some waves! Happy 4th of July and have a safe and wonderful weekend!
