Nikki works at Macaroni Grill. She is a beautiful African-American woman in her late thirties, and I met her when my community was invited to join a family for dinner there last month.
Right away I realized that she wasn’t just a typical waitress. She was personable and thoughtful in a way that it was evident that she wasn’t just trying to get a good tip or just doing her job; the person she is just shone through.
One thing that impressed me about her was the way she intentionally made eye-contact when speaking or interacting with one of us. She seemed to enjoy what she did and making sure people knew that they were being taken care of.
Thank you, Nikki, for taking the time to interact with each person individually and seeing each one as the person they are.
