Three Goals for Tomorrow

- Deal with some financial junk.
There have been a few Starbucks moments that I wanted to remember, and my goal is to start adding them to these reports. The first one didn't happen today, but was actually a few days ago. We had a customer come in who, as near as I could tell, was mute and possibly deaf. She began the interaction by signing, and I had to tell her with deep regret that I didn't know ASL.
She was undeterred, however, began cheerfully looking around for some way to communicate. I printed out a slip of paper from the receipt printer and handed her my Sharpie, and she wrote in big, clear letters, "TALL MOCHA." If she was deaf, I was amazed at her ability to read my lips, as she didn't miss anything; however, it may have been that she was perfectly able to hear but simply unable to speak.
In any case, she had a happy warm smile and seemed like a pretty awesome person. It was cool to meet her. :)
The second item was that today was the last day of one of the gals at the store, and she was in a very silly mood as a result. For a good hour she kept pulling on the apron strings of everyone on the team, half-untying them, and then making a big show about what an accident it was. Her attempts to dissemble were not very effective. ;P I had only worked a few shifts with her, and even as I write this I keep blanking on her name and have to look it up (Selama), but she seemed like a fun person and I wish her well.
And now... off to bed. :) Gnite world, and have an awesome tomorrow.
