The barista who always serves me coffee at our campus coffee-shop says:
“I’ve been meaning to tell you: you are always SO pleasant. Thank you for being that way.”
You see, people? I’m only a scary ogre online. In RL I’m actually pleasant.
This, by the way, is part of Canadian identity. It’s considered a horrible faux pas to be rude to people in the service industry. In my own culture, the way to go is to be super rude to everybody. Which makes me that much eager to shed my identity in favor of the Canadian.
