Unfair Advantages

You know, being a pretty girl with a nice demeanor and kind smile can get you lots of places. It can get you a whole pickle with your sandwich at the deli (even though it’s only supposed to be a half). It can get nice (though not always speedy) service. It can even get people to help you look for something. It will not, however, get you anywhere with the waif-like trainee at the coffee shop who barely speaks English. That’s OK, Tuesday’s Frappuccino was OK without coffee. Really, it was a new experience.
