But there she is, every morning, smiling at everyone, her greeting filled with warmth, asking genuinely how each of us is doing.
And I thought of lyrics in the Ani DiFranco song Be Nice:
maybe you don't like your jobAnd I thought, if she can smile, so can I.
maybe you didn't get enough sleep
well, nobody likes their job
nobody got enough sleep
maybe you just had
the worst day of your life
but, you know, there's no escape
and there's no excuse
so just suck up and be nice
