I'm that predictable.
Today I got there and found one of the women who works there standing outside, perplexed. She'd locked the door to go to the bathroom next door and couldn't get back in. I tried. The locked was totally jammed.
She called her boss.
We chatted a bit.
Inside I was spinning about where to go for my coffee.
But, she said, "the usual?" and went through the restaurant next door to get in the back way. Moments later she was back, cup in hand.
While we were talking about blogging, job opportunities, how marketing to girls has gotten hot pink out of control a man walked up the ramp, disconcerted to find the door locked.
He had been looking forward to a vanilla chai and offered to come back later but my coffee friend said not at all, she'd be back with his drink in moments. He took my seat on the bench, offering to explain to potential patrons what was going on.
We agreed that this was a quirky, yet lovely NYC moment.
Gratitude day 2 is about sharing unlikely connections and appreciating the thoughtfulness of others.
