Tonia, Sacramento – gruff gentleman asked if I was having “one of those fancy coffee drinks”

Several weeks ago, I was in line at the local Java City and an older, rather gruff gentleman in line in front of me turned around and asked if I would be ordering “one of those fancy coffee drinks.” I indicated that on that particular day I was craving a cup of tea, but that I did enjoy the fancy coffees occasionally. He handed me a “buy 10 get 1 free” punchcard, already fully punched and said to enjoy my next one on him. I believe the barista said his name was Walt (which was also my Grandpa’s name) – he was clearly a regular. You know, I hung onto that card for a couple of weeks just because it made me feel good to know that people still do that kind of thing for one another. That one gesture has brightened several days beyond the one I got the fancy coffee on. So thanks, Walt!!!
