Dessert On The House June 14, 2012 – Posted by svr95
A friend and I went to a Mexican restaurant for lunch last weekend. Since we are vegetarians we customized our order.

Unfortunately, the food did not turn out to our liking. When our server, Maria, asked how everything was we, honestly, told her that although we loved her service we were not too happy with the food.

After listening to our feedback she spoke to her manager and they offered us dessert on the house.

She gave us a few minutes to decide which desert we wanted. Suddenly, my friend’s eyes sparkled with joy and she asked me, "Do you have a Smile card?” I loved the idea, and when Maria returned we gave her the Smile card and asked her to offer the desert, anonymously, to someone else in the restaurant.

She was deeply touched and shared that she had been having a bad day since lots of customers had given her a hard time. However, after meeting us and learning about the Smile card she was overjoyed – and so were we!
