i was working front register and this nice middle aged man orders just a small coffee. he was wearing really worn out clothing and was going to pay with just the pocket change he had. i like to help out poor people in any way i can so i offered him our free senior coffee. he says “oh but aren’t i too young for that? i’m only 52.” our senior coffee is for people 55+.
so i said “we can just round your age up a bit” and gave him the coffee and he was so surprised it was free? he was like “so i really don’t owe anything? is it ok if i get a refill too?” like he was so grateful so of course i told him he could have as many refills as he wanted. he said “thank you so much” and left.
he came back a little later with a plastic bag full of plastic necklaces and he held it up to me and he said “pick any one you want :)” apparently he makes necklaces to sell but he let me have one for free. it really made my day. ❤
