This generation’s minimum-wage, workin’ gal’s
Who is coffee girl? Many, many regulars have tried to ask me that question. I usually just shrug, force a smile, hand over their morning lattes, and duck behind the counter. Like most lifers in the service industry, I pretend these questions don’t exist- I’d rather steam up creamy foam for you than think about my grubby refrigerator- box-style-life and how I had no choice but to don an apron all those once-upon- a-times ago.
These tips have been successfully tested, and are surprisingly effective. Although I haven’t actually asked a customer out (my co-workers have), I have made it possible to be successfully asked out by the customer (even better!) on a few occasions. Yes, the coffee shop is more practical than any online dating website. Isn’t a cafe where all classic first dates begin, anyway?
