And One More Thing ...
I did have one enjoyable experience at a Nats concession stand this weekend. I stopped by the "Slice Down The Line" stand behind section 114, looking to take advantage of the short line to grab a drink. As I approached the counter, a brash young employee [who shall remain nameless, in case he was inadvertently breaking some rules] rushed forward to greet me with:
"Do you wanna put a tip for me in this cup?" while pointing at a small plastic drinking cup.
I inhaled deeply, getting ready to blast him. How dare he be so presumptuous? Nobody should expect a tip to hand me a soda! And he hadn't even done anything yet!
Then I realized I was wrong. He had rushed forward. That was the first person behind one of those counters that I had seen rush *anywhere.* "You're damned right I do," I said, putting a buck in the cup. "Now give me a Coke Zero." I was out 15 seconds later.
Thank you, sir. Maybe if some of your colleagues see you being rewarded for your initiative, I might drop some money in a tip jar for them. . . .
