Now that I have a full time job, I really appreciate those who work on the weekend, especially on a holiday weekend.
I decided to share my appreciation with a barista at Starbs on Friday.
Me: Thank you so much for being open. I really appreciate it.
Barista: What do you mean? Every big retail store is open this weekend.
Me: Oh I know, but I just got a job and now really appreciate those that have to work on the weekend… So thank you.
Barista: This is your first job?
Me: Yeah, because I’m young.
Barista: How old are you?
Barista: That’s not that young.
Me: Well I’v e had fake jobs like babysitting and a camp counselor.
Barista: Those count.
Me: No they don’t.
And then he gave me a free drink.
I also told the woman who worked at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles how I appreciated her for working there…
