I get it. At some point we’re all going to need a doctor, a teacher, a mechanic… but hospitality workers hold a special place in my heart because I NEED my barista. Every. Single. Day. And my local baker a few times a week. And I really appreciate the work of a talented chef on a regular basis because my cooking is average at best. #firstworldproblems
