After a few months’ hiatus from getting my daily coffee at my favorite 7-11, I returned today with a warm, excited greeting by name from my favorite store manager, Jackie. Even though she explained how business has been tough and that she’s been stretched thin between stores, she managed to make me feel happy and special.
So, instead of buying my usual one lotto ticket, I bought two, held them out in front of me, and asked her to pick one. And that brought a smile to HER face. Good luck Jackie!
