Small Business, Big Difference

| Working | August 29, 2014

(I’m the customer in this story. I am just returning home after taking my fiancée to the tram stop in the morning and decide to stop at a café nearby.)

Barista: “Here’s your large mocha.”

Me: “Could I pay by card please?”

Barista: “Sorry the minimum is $10.”

(I go to grab some chocolate to bring up the total.)

Barista: “Don’t worry about it. Just pay next time you come in.”

Me: “Are you sure?”

Barista: “Yeah. You’ve been in half a dozen times. We know who you are.”

(Made my day! One of the reasons I love going to small businesses.)
