i think its really hard having to deal with people all the time. you get some nice and then some not so nice but when the not so nice come you usually want to confront them and ask why they think they need to act the way they do.......
when i started out working with people in the food service industry i was pretty much up front and treated everyone like crap then i thought of how i am a christian andi need to reflect how jesus is and that changed the way i acted twards others. its makes me sad to think back in the day i used to be so mean and then there are non christians who are way nicer than me. lame!
so it seems as though lately i have been back to where i was before i havent been as nice to the not so nice people and it makes me sad. I'm getting yet again back to that place cause i need to be back there but it still makes me sad that i might have reflected the wrong image of christ or but a bad name for young people or my sisters bistro.....i guess its all ok though cause I'm forgiven and I'm coming back! YAY!

that's really cool. sometimes it gets so easy to be impatient and rude towards rude customers. but i think a good policy, not just for baristas but for life, make them notice a difference in the way you do things. tell them to have a great day, with a genuine smile. by "being" Jesus to them, it might even make them want to come back.
