I used to watch people with interest on how they prepare their coffee of tea. It is a ritual for some and an automatic response for others. You can tell those that have been around and those just getting started and working it out. Some people know that two sugars will produce their required sweet taste. Others experiment
GOT THE DRINK NOW DO YOU HAVE.... LIFE?
With tea, to lemon or not to sweeten or not and to have with or without milk remains the focus. If that is not enough, there is a order in which this is all done.

COURTESY & MANNERS...and SMILES?
I run into people who still haven't discovered their manners or courtesy and how much weight that carries when used and when not used. I remember applying for a job at Disney many years ago. On their check-off to hire forms, they list DOES THE APPLICANT SMILE as an important criteria.
