Since a few days Sophia serves me breakfast. She knows that I love fresh melon, crispy toast and a creamy latte. The boutique hotel where I’m staying prides itself on it’s customer intimacy. In my opinion, a concept in which they’ve succeeded very well.
Today Sophia asked me what I did for a living. Proudly I told her about HR Dynamics, the great assignments I landed and the cool people I met. It was a fun and animated conversation. When Sophia left with the breakfast leftovers I saw my husband somewhat dismayed face. Apparantly he was waiting to jump in to the conversation and talk about his job as an investment banker.
PS: the natural order was restored during diner when my husband got a menu with prices and I received a blanc copy. All this, while I was the one picking up the tab.
