Teaching is a sacrificial kind of job. Nobody does it for the money. But just because they’re not motivated by dollars and cents doesn’t mean teachers don’t appreciate a pat on the back or a kind word. In fact, it’s often the intangibles that keep them going. Why not write your child’s teacher a thank you letter? In this age of electronic media and communication, handwriting a letter shows deep thoughtfulness and graciousness that cannot be purchased. If your child is of appropriate age, you may have him/her contribute to it as well. These notes of appreciation will often be tucked away and treasured for many years to come.
One of the biggest revenue builders for you is going to be the sale of whole bean coffee as well as your coffee beverages. Make a big deal to your customers about what they’re drinking and give them tips and tricks for brewing the same beans at home. This might mean they’ll skip a few trips to your store, but a bag of beans costs way more than their three cups of coffee for the week. Most times customers will spend more on whole bean coffee if they get hooked, or introduce it to their office. All great opportunities.
Maybe the coffee shop scene is not for you, or maybe your just in a hurry to have your buzz. Well don’t forget that McDonald’s serves a pretty decent cup of coffee, and all sizes are the same price. McDonald’s has really improved their coffee over the last couple of years, so don’t be afraid to dive in. You can find McDonald’s everywhere – right next to the Starbucks, just north of Macungie borough on Route 100, or over on Hamilton Ave in Trexlertown.
The goal of the reunion date should be to simply reconnect and realize that the two of you can get along together. You want to have fun with your ex – the same type of playful, flirty fun you used to have when you first began dating each other.
One reason we may see the Locksmith is to get our locks changed. There’s not much we can do to avoid this part of dealing with these guys. Unless of course we change the lock ourselves! Spending an hour or so to change a lock is a bunch better than paying somebody 0 an hour to do it for you. If you aren’t so “hands on” you are better off providing your own hardware or else you may be paying an inflated price if the lock guys provide it.
Wa-wa makes a pretty nice cup of hot black stuff for when you’re on the go – and of course, you can grab your paper, your lunch for later, and fill your gas tank at the same time. I like to mix their powdered cappuccino (it’s too sweet to be the “real” stuff) with some rich, dark roast coffee. MMMMM.
Starbucks sets the standard for coffee in Macungie, and in fact, there are two Starbucks within a couple miles of each other. This is a coffee drinking town! The first is on Route 100 just north of the borough, and the second is across Route 222 from Wal-Mart. You can’t go wrong with Starbucks; you always get a great cup of coffee.
