The Starbucks manager greeted me this morning: "I have something for you."
She slipped around the corner into the Starbucks inner sanctum, and she came back with a clear plastic box. It was latched closed, had a handle on top, and filled with games, toys, crafts, and crayons.
"I saw you here with your boys on their snow day, and I loved the pictures on your blog, so I got this box of fun for you. Any time you want to bring them here, this box is just for you guys. I know it's hard enough to get two little guys out and on the go, so don't worry about packing toys and games. We'll keep these here for you."
Before I could say thank you, she continued, "And don't worry - this won't be out and available for anyone else. It's just for your kids. You let any of the baristas know when you need it; we all know you. We want to help you, and we really want to make sure your kids like it here."
Impressive. Above and beyond.
People amaze me.
