  • I had a drink named after me at a coffee shop that I used to frequent. Lol!

  • Yes I have, at the grocery store, then it became a joke saying that I worked there.

  • I always chat with the ladies at the grocery store. I stop there daily, on my way home from work (I walk, and it's right on the way). I pick up day-old items and things from the scratch/dent bin daily. They always know when I'll be in and often set things aside for me. Very small town!

  • Oddly enough that happened yesterday. I went through the drive thru at Arbys and the lady remembered which condiment I liked. I thought it was so strange because I've only been there a couple times. I found it to be kind of uncomfortable.

  • Nope but my mom is like personal friends at most the places she shops.

  • Yes, because when you frequent some place often enough they really get to know you.

  • There's a convenience store in the town I grew up in and the guy who runs it remembers everything you buy! I'm not joking, the guy is like a savant or something. My husband went in there once and bought a copy of Harper's then everytime he'd go in there to buy cigarettes (we both used to smoke) the guy would say "No magazine today?" Or If I went in there to buy cigarettes for me and my husband the guy would just say "One and one?" Or he'd just take them out without a word! He did this with EVERY customer in town!

    Then we moved and didn't go there for like 5 years. My husband went in the other day to get a juice when we were visiting my parents and the guy was like "How is she?" meaning me, and then he said "Did you guys move?" It's been over 5 YEARS!!!!
