Today, I was the only waitress who showed up for my shift. I was incredibly overwhelmed, and I had a table whose order took much longer than it should have. Instead of yelling at me, the patron tipped me a significant amount and wrote me a note saying he appreciated my sincere kindness and level-headedness.
My phone dropped yesterday and completely shattered, so my dad offered to drive 2 hours to come buy me a new phone. The fact that he thought to sacrifice that time and money made me so grateful.
I had a rough week and was telling my boyfriend about all the bad things going on. He lives 5 hours away and made the trip to come have a long weekend with me. Definitely made my crappy week less crappy.
