Bought water for workers
As a parent, the single greatest places on the planet are indoor play centers.
A small fee (no, it's not a small fee, it's pretty over priced considering the whole thing is profit) and poof, you've a massive play area where your kid can run themselves to exhaustion meaning when you get home, your child needs a nap. Totally worth the not-so-small fee.
The workers there are super nice, they like kids and completely understand why their jobs are important to the sanity of the parents.
One of the workers was one of my former students. This student I remember her name. A totally redeemed myself from my student debacle from yesterday.
I went to the cafe and bought the workers bottled water.
Instantly smiles. I'm a big fan of instant smiles. There's also the smile of disbelief. I've been getting that one a lot too.
My daughter is taking a nap... totally worth it. Big smile on my face too.
Would I do it again. Yep.
Effort: Not much, it was more work on for the girl scanning my credit card.
Time: 1 minute
