On one of our family trips post Covid, we stayed at a hotel. We stayed for two days to sort out our job. In the buffet restaurant, we were greeted warmly by the staff every time we walked in. Once you stay for a while, you get familiar with some of the stewards helping you out.
The day we checked out, my wife and I decided to tip one of the stewards who always was eager to serve us. We did that, and as we were about to leave the restaurant, I noticed a stewardess or maybe a junior staff member who used to note our room number to account for the meals. I asked my wife to tip her too, as she too works all day. The young person was overjoyed when we tipped her too.
Every act of kindness brings smiles.
