Heartwarming Anecdote of the Day

   Today I was up in Merced, California, meeting a member of the ASUCM Supreme Court for coffee. There were a bunch of people milling around about where the line should be but most of them seemed to have already ordered and shortly they wandered off. The guy in front of me ordered and then there was me and this grouchy looking old guy standing there.
   "Were you here first?" I asked him, stepping back. He really looked sour, I was almost afraid to say anything to him, but I also am not about to cut off an old guy.
   Without really answering me he steps up to the register. "I'll have a a drip coffee, and whatever he wants" he said indicating at me. "Sometimes it pays to be polite" he said with a smile as he paid for my iced coffee.


Unrelated Picture of the Day

Picture from Epic Roadtrip 2007 I don't THINK I put up yet.
While this picture is from a sunrise in Wyoming, I did drive past similar windmills and a similar looking sunset today.
