For The Love Of Pizza

For The Love Of Pizza
So I was at an eatery (not this one) in South Florida. 



I order a sandwich, and I must’ve been in a little mood.



The waiter says to me, “Do you want it with everything?”



And I smiled and said, “Yeah, especially the everything!”



Then when we were done eating, I get up to pay at the counter, and pull out my plastic. 



The cashier says to me, “We only take cash.”



I smile again and now playing with her respond, “Well, I only pay plastic, now what do we do?”



I was only joking around as I pull out the few bucks of cash I happen to have in my pocket (note: I rarely even carry paper money in the age of technology).



As I left, I thought about the brief exchanges and sort of laughed to myself. 



It doesn’t pay to take a hard and fast line with people…



Much better to be flexible like, “What would you like on your sandwich (we have X, Y, and Z)?” or “Cash or credit today Sir?”



Being all or nothing just provokes an occasional smart aleck to pay a little back. 😉
