Joe and Rosemary

And then, there are customers who are amazing, and who make you remember why we remain in this ever-challenging business.

Joe and Rosemary.

We were once neighbors, sort-of. Lived in the same suburb, traded idle gossip about the other suburbians. I never knew them until I started working at the tavern; isn't it a shame that we don't get to know our neighbors better? Came in to eat tonight, and afterward stopped at the bar for brandy-and-chat.

Delightful. It really only takes two people to make your work so pleasant and easy. I only ask that the night fly by, and Joe and Rosemary, and so many other colorful customers, make that happen.
