"For Here or to Go, Love?"...
At the Sandwich Bar on campus:-
Sweet Old Dear: "And what can I get you today, hon?"
Me: "Classic Club, please"
SOD: "Mayo, love?"
Me: "Yes, please!"
SOD: "What kind of bread, dear?"
SOD: "And what vegetables would you like with that, sweets?"
SOD: "Just tomatoes, dear? Would you like more?"
Me: "It's ok, no thank you. My mouth can't stretch that big...;)"
SOD: "Oh, you dear. For here or to go, love?"
Me: "To go"
SOD: "Here you go sweetheart. See you again"
Me: "Thank you very much"
SOD: "You're welcome, hon".
Another SOD: "Just the sandwich, hon?"
Me: "Thank you" (When taking back my card)
ASOD: "You're welcome, my dear"...
Awww...You can listen to them all day! And anytime of the day you go, there will be nice and 'hon', and 'love', and 'dear' you...
The line can be long but they will make their bread with all the love in the world, and nobody seems to really grumble...Not out loud, anyway ;)...
One lady even called me 'my little muffin' once! Hehe...
