I remember working in a coffee house and having a regular customer who slept on the metal bench across the street.
She liked me and would bring me in gifts, things like lottery tickets.
One day, a co-worker, a psychology student at the local college, asked me what I did to have her like me so much when she was also so nice to her, always giving her free coffee, etc. I looked at her and said, “You give her free coffee? I don’t even give my husband free coffee.”
So why did she like me? Because I treated her like any other customer that I had.
This video asked homeless people to write down something about themselves that others wouldn’t know just by walking past them, and the results definitely tug at the heartstrings.
