Tonight at work a family of six came in for dinner — two adults and four children.  They had a toddler, a little girl about three, and two older ones.  As I seated them, I gave the toddler his kid’s menu and crayons, and the little girl said she wanted one, too.  I said, “Here you go, sweetheart,” and handed hers to her.

She lit up like a Christmas tree and said, “Thank you, Miss Lady!”  As I said “You’re welcome,” she told me, “You know, you’re kind of cute!”  I told her that was the nicest thing anyone had said to me all day.

I love my job.
