The stuff I get away with saying

I spend most of my time at work. I do what I can to not let it dominate my thoughts because otherwise it would dominate my¬†“head space” when I’m not on the clock.

I work in a coffee shop and it means that I meet many different people each day. I find the people I meet very fascinating. What I enjoy is seeing what I can get away with saying to strangers. I’ve always been a firm believer that you can say what you like to people as long as you say it the right way. I don’t say horrible things but I like to push my luck. I like to treat people like I’ve known them years and I think it’s the main reason I can get on with most people.

It can backfire sometimes but not often. I can usually talk myself out of those situations when they arise.

I don’t want to sound like one of “those people” but I can honestly say, my customers are probably the best thing about my job. Most of them are a lot of fun and I’m even on first name terms with some of them.
