I am your customer

Dear retailer,

I see when you reduce portion sizes without reducing the price.

I notice when you wipe the side of the cup with your hand.

I see the dirty cloth in your back pocket and the dirty mop and bucket in the corner.

I can spot the difference between a fake smile and a real one.

I know you think I am not going to tip if visit wearing my tracky dax.

I notice when you avert your gaze to avoid being approached.

I get that you don’t want to really be there.

I see all these things.

But I don’t care.

I can always go somewhere else, if not today, tomorrow.

Yours sincerely
