  1. Thank you for posting this really wonderful article, it really my heart scream YES! I’m College educated and worked in my field for 8 years before deciding that it wasn’t the lifestyle for me. For the last two years I’ve been working as a waitress and do quite well at it and enjoy meeting new people. I’m really struggling at times with how your treated in certain fields, like your less then. Thank you for posting this very insightful and beautifully written article.

    YES! We have a saying in my group of friends that started out as a reference to men on first dates but expanded to include everyone. “If they are not nice to the waitstaff, they are not nice!”

    How you treat people shows who you are. It feels good to be good.
