Everyone makes mistakes but it is how we handle them and move forward from them that shows your real character.
Recently, a Reddit user CircleAddict, posted a picture of a card and money they had received from Debbie - a customer who went through their drive-thru the day before.
The card read:
“Greetings Starbuck barista!
Yesterday at your drive thru we had a less than cheerful encounter. At no fault of yours, you were out of carriers and said you could not take my empty cup (trash). I was less than understanding and my manner was curt.
I need to apologize. The thought of leaving a trail of unkindness like that is not the path I want to reflect. Not for you, not for me.
You are a young man, clearly working hard to build a future and you should be commended.
Keep up your attitude of cheer and hope. Stay hopeful no matter what kind of people cross your path (or drive thru :) )
Surly [sic], God has good blessing in store.
You taught this ole lady something yesterday about kindness, compassion and staying humble.
I thank you! Debbie
God bless you today and all your todays.”
We commend Debbie for the way she fixed the situation.
