Later in the evening, my friend was waiting for me at my office.

-Did you even try to talk to her today?

-No! But I saw her twice, I answered him joyfully.

-You are an idiot, man! You are not even realizing that you got this job just to meet her and do something! Somehow you got her phone number; I thought you would at least call her and talk, but you’re just hopeless!!

Yes! he’s right. I am working at the coffee shop just to meet her again and talk to her. She would come here every day just before going to her office which is a few blocks away. Every time I would see her, I would be speechless. TOTAL BLACKOUT!

– Tell me, man! what are you planning to do? Are you going to spend the rest of your life working these crazy shifts trying to find a way to talk to her, while she finds someone else and she settles down?


– Then what are you waiting for? Waiting for the Santa Clause to put some sense in your head?

I did not know what to answer for that comment. I just laughed and bowed my head down.

As he was leaving the room, he just shouted at me that I was useless and nobody could help me and that I was going to die single. SINGLE FOREVER!

 The Coffee Shop – 1


It has been few years I start working here, I made few good friends. Thanks to the manager, who was my friend, I got the job right away. He was wondering why I was insisting on this posting. Nine to five at the coffee shop and working for my company from home. It is not easy, but I enjoy what I do which makes the work easier. I started my company right after graduating from University.

I kept my personal business a secret at the shop; my coworker knew me as someone who was in desperate need of getting a job to support my family. Even though the manager was my friend,  I made sure he won’t divulge my secret to anybody. Working at the coffee shop was something unexpected but something I will never regret. I enjoyed every single day working here.

Since the coffee shop is at the center of few companies, the shop is always busy, we barely have time to stop for a small chat.

As I entered  –Good Morning guys!

– What’s up ! come and help me, dude! We will talk later! 

I quickly got at the back of the counter and start serving.

I start off my day perfectly until I meet that one person every morning and that’s when my world around me stops working
