    Closing Down But Lifting Up

    | Milwaukee, WI, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink, Theme Of The Month, Top

    (The company I work for is going out of business, and it is my final day working. I’ve been chatting with a customer about how hard finding a new job is as I ring her up.)

    Customer: “Well, thank you. We’re off to Starbucks now.”

    Me: “Oh, I love Starbucks.”

    Customer: “Really? Would you like me to bring you something?”

    Me: “I… what?”

    Customer: “Yeah, what would you like? I have a gift card so it’s not a problem.”

    Me: “The closest one is fifteen minutes away.”

    Customer: “I know. What would you like?”

    Me: “Um… a caramel mocha?”

    Customer: “Grande or venti?”

    Me: “A… grande is good. Thank you.”

    Customer: “It’s not a problem. Caramel mocha. I’ll be back with it soon.”

    (True to her word, she was back later with the coffee. I’ve not had any luck in the job search yet, but her bringing me a free coffee on my last day really made me smile.)
