Mine this morning was Dovie, a cute, very pleasant, friendly young woman from the Philippines. I have long found Filipinos to be a very friendly, kind, hard-working, upbeat, helpful people by and large, from my contacts with them in the coffee, fast food, and medical areas. (The best, most impressive, hands-on caregivers of any culture I can think of.)
No, I had not a second of hesitation in contributing to the recent Phllippines disaster relief via the Red Cross (which always does the best work of any charity in various crises).
Retroly, I will add Arnel from Smitty’s. A true gentleman.
