Thursday Portrait.....






I've always prided myself for being very polite.
Taught to me by Mother, Grandparents, and my schooling.
Today whilst ordering 2 for 2 Bucks fish sandwiches from
RALLY's (My favorite fast food place), I apologized to the
order taker that I couldn't find my coupon for an Olive Burger.
She said to please come around. When I got to the window, she
smiled broadly, and whispered..."You were so polite that we
gave you an extra Olive burger for free...Thank You"
So... TWO fish sandwiches (Which are bigger than McDonalds BTW)
And TWO Olive Burgers, ya wanna guess the total with tax?
3.55!!! Three FIFTY FRICKEN FIVE!!!
Now you know why I'm smiling...See You Friday? (Or 8:00 PM EST Thur)

Absolutely - it opens far more doors than being demanding.

I'm a big fan of courtesy and good manners. Olive burgers, not so much.

Your charm probably helped too. I always knew you were a proper gentleman.

TALON said...

That was so sweet! It takes so little energy to be positive and it does make a huge difference.

I really shouldn't have read this right now - I'm ready to make lunch and there's not a burger in sight...sigh... :)

Mama Zen said...

At that price, you can afford to share!

PattiKen said...

See, charms and manners win out every time. But I gotta ask... What the heck is an olive burger?

i special ordered a bag from harley that much to my disappointment didn't fit when i tried it. i was told clearly that special orders can't be returned. since i didn't yell and scream like everybody else she said they would take it back no problem.

You show those hamburgers--totally unavailable here--purely to torture me, right? How polite is that?!?

Otherwise, though--I'm sure you are one polite guy.
