Real service is born out of love and dedication. To serve with dedication can be compared to a circle, for a circle has no beginning or end. Love doesn’t have a beginning or end either. Love exists for love’s sake only. Love has no expectations.
There are two kinds of people in this world: Winners and losers. Winners know on a primal level that they are heads and shoulders above losers. This winner was drinking a beer, watching the game at Bumpers when he noticed an average loser crying like a ten-year-old girl while mangling the lyrics to “Faithfully.” The winner asked the loser, whose name turned out to be Joe Grant (typical loser name) what the problem was. Joe replied that his girlfriend dumped him. The winner thought he would cheer Joe up by buying him a beer, which turned into Joe and the winner getting shitfaced on shots of Wild Turkey.
Winners are generous with their time and money.
When the winner tried to pay the tab at the end of the night (typical winner move), the bartender informed him his debit card was declined. The winner told her that made no sense. He’d asked his parents the day before to please deposit forty dollars into his account, and he was pretty sure they had come through. The bartender ran the card again without success. The winner tried to explain how bank deposits can take extra long to clear when they are made from a different time zone. Winners are very tenacious.
Winners attract losers at bars because winners give off an air of self-confidence. Sometimes they go a step further and allow losers to believe they are winners. That’s why the winner let Joe Grant pay the $72.50 bar tab. He even let Joe Grant buy him a big waffle stack at the Jack in the Box across the street. Winners are gracious that way.
