Down here in Augusta, we went to a local favorite for dinner called Bonefish.The young waiter walked up to the table, introduced himself, then took out a pen and started scribbling on the table cloth (/ paper). He wrote his name (“in case ya’ll forget”) and, even cooler, did it backwards. And whaddya know, the entire table talked about it afterwards for a few minutes. It was a ready made icebreaker.
One of those “little things” that make a big difference.
