Friendly Barista

When L. was buying my mocha the other day, the nice clerk thanked him for his tip in the plastic box. I guess others do not realize the container is there for deposit, not withdrawal.

I have lived long enough to see coffee go from a nickel a cup to one hundred times that amount. Of course, at that time my salary was fifty cents an hour and now the minimum wage has not gone to 100 times that!

And the cardboard cups today are much larger than in 1949.
