Just after christmas, a new kid started in the bean (on a co-op placement/free labour!) ... I don't like change, but the bean is my downtown home, so I decided to treat him like family and friendly-like, right from the start.... That's the only way to do it really.
Owner-Dave said he'd been impressed by the guy, that he seemed outgoing and right for the job... but after a week, meh, I think it was obvious to all that the guy wasn't so much a people person as he'd put himself out to be.
(note:: dream job after my own ranch... my own coffee shop)
I've spent the past few months prodding him just to get a hello... and had given him up last week as a lost cause.
Tuesday I went into the bean and was pouring my coffee... there wasn't anyone else in the shop.
I hear "Hey Lindsay!"
I look up, realise he's actually SPEAKING... to me, and forgive the fact that it's the wrong name... he then starts to jabber about the weather. I ask him what the count down is until he's done his Co-Op.... "Today's my last day"
lol. I guess it's safe to talk to people on your last day.
RE: the gift/ prize I won the other night....
yes, I did receive my gift, even though I chased the guy out of the house before he was done his presentation... I got a photocopied paper that tells me I'm entitled to a free round trip ticket to Hawaii, I have to go for 2 weeks though, and I have to pay for everything once I get there.
pretty nice of them eh? It's worth $1500... so that's cool.
Anyone want it?
oh, but it's also good for a 2 night stay in some high end hotel, I'm going to look into that... I don't mind sitting through an info session if that pans out... I'm ALL over hotels!!!!!
