We had a wonderful lunch at P F Chang's.

You can't really see it in this image but those horse statues in front of the restaurants have some kind of cover over their butts. We all laughed about this quite a bit because one of our horses is particularly gassy. Just thought I'd throw that in.

Our waiter was very personable and did an outstanding job. I didn't pay but if I had I would have tipped him more than normal.

The food is excellent, too. I particularly enjoyed the Chang's Spicy Chicken but most of the other dishes as well.

Afterwards my lovely wife (as opposed to my unlovely one) dropped me off at the hotel and then went to spend time with her daughter. They are so close and I know for a fact that Judy wanted nothing more than to be with her daughter for a few hours for her own Mother's day present. I read while she was gone and then later she picked me up and our son-in-law grilled steaks and shrimp and stuff for us.

But on the way back to the hotel after Chang's I stopped by Starbuck's for hot chocolate. The girl who served me from the drive through window was particularly nice and struck up a conversation with us about how our day had been and where had we eaten lunch and so on. I was impressed with how personable she was and remarked about it as we left.

I said that if I had a business like Starbucks I'd want to go out of my way to teach the servers to be personable.

Judy said I probably should hire someone for that!!!!

Sounds like you enjoyed excellent customer service. It's one of those things that many of us in the service industry strive for. I just wish it was the norm instead of the exception.

I saw a Starbucks the other day in my travels and thought about you. Take care and have a great day!
