I had 210 transactions on my register alone today. My teammate, Sir Ellsworth, well surpassed this total. Combined we had over 500 transactions. 500 interactions with other human beings.
A few weeks ago I met a man from New Castle who came into Philadelphia for the MLA Conference (Modern Language Association.)
He told me how he planned to stop by the Rosenbach on his way out. The Rosenbach is an extraordinary find. They have rare books that are desired by many. It is also very unassuming.
As he was leaving, and we both waved goodbye; I was suddenly struck with struck with the realization that we will probably never meet again.
Every interaction has infinite possibilities. Make sure you make it the best one possible.
