One thing I will say about my job is that it’s rarely ever dull.

On Tuesday’s we have senior citizens day which means the elders can get a whole meal for $3.75.  Boy oh boy did they squeal when we raised the price up from 2.99 to 3.75!!!!   Just listening to the elders is usually about as much entertainment as a person can handle in one day.

Now we have a new waitress who is from Holland.  It’s rather interesting working with her.  I’m amazed at how well she speaks English.  Customers are amazed to find her here in central South Dakota.

So, on Tuesday, Dutch came back to the kitchen and told me the oddest thing had just happened.  She said the man sitting in booth 3 had asked if that table full of people were the local senior citizens.  She said, yes they are. They come out every Tuesday.  Well, this man said to find out who is the oldest and who is the youngest among them and he would buy their lunch.   That meant my next door neighbor lady who lives strictly off her social security check got her luch paid for.  

But we had to wonder, what motivated that man to do that?  It didn’t cost him much, but it meant the world to my neighobr.  He wasn’t far away from that “senior” age group himself.  

It’s fun to work with someone who, like me, likes to find out what makes people tick.  Wish we’d got a chance to ask that man why he did it.

Love it
