50 Acts - #6-8
I try to be kind to those who work in restaurants. They are often treated like garbage and some still smile in spite of it, they are taxed on more than they bring in, they maintain a flexibility unlike many industries, they sweat in hot kitchens, and sometimes can't even afford the food they serve. It's work I've done myself and now spend a lot of time in eating establishments, and getting to know to these people and their ambitions or the stories of this, their chosen career, is fascinating to me.
So, last week I wanted to pay back some of the kindnesses I've been shown. We surprised a server with a tip who wasn't waiting on my table. And then we bought two more a dinner for their break on a busy Friday night.
