Always fresh, always thankful

Posted on Fri, Jul 27, 2012 at 2:21 PM

Hey Canada Post, I work the early morning shift at a very early morning/late night coffee establishment in the Young Street area, and having your employees come in always makes my day. They are always very kind, smiles abound, and willing to chat a little. Please always keep the salt 'n' pepper gentleman who orders his whole grain blueberry muffin around. He's the sweetest guy and a staff favourite.

But this is specifically for the redhead lady with the sunglasses, you have become the best part of my day. I have been in the habit of hiding a vanilla yogurt every day for you so that we never run out before you come in, but I haven't seen you since I rushed out back and made you one personally. I think you're fascinating and beautiful and I smile a lot whenever you come in. Come back please!

And everyone else, I serve you your coffee every day with a smile and my best positivity. When you're friendly back, it makes my day worth way more than your 27 cent tips ever could. I know it's hard some mornings, but just try, okay? Thanks! —Just a Full-Time Workin' Girl Livin' in a Cutthroat Coffee World
