Nice to be appreciated

It’s very easy to get hung up on the thought of awkward or just plain rude customers, but I do get some lovely people in too. That’s not to say that they can’t also have their moments, but today saw someone donate a couple of really big boxes of biscuits about library purely as a thank you for being there.

We hadn’t done anything unusual, and the customer is a regular who we occasionally have to remind that we are closing – he just wanted to show appreciation in a simple way. He apologised for their being a homely selection, and we assured him that was fine, we were a homely bunch.

Just a nice moment that I thought I would share.
