I met someone from my last “real” job. I went to a coffee,tea, and bean cafe after dropping my son off at day care. I notice the barista looked really familiar. I didn’t say anything but it really felt like a deja vu moment. After I picked up my drink, I sat down to read my book. Moments later the barista I was talking to asking me if I knew him.
I told him I did not know him personally and I asked him where has he seen me before. He apologized for bothering and said I looked like this girl he use to see everyday at the Palazzo Hotel. Then I said he isn’t completely wrong I did work at the Palazzo hotel but not for the hotel. I worked in one of their boutiques. I am someone he did see frequently when we both worked the grave yard shift. He was always the barista I went to for my coffee. We confirmed it with each other and I told him he’s not use to seeing me in regular clothes. I was in a black pant suit nearly everyday. We didn’t exchange too much words since he was still working but it was really nice to meet someone from my past work job.
I don’t keep in contact with very many people from my last job. When you work in a commission environment, you don’t make very much friends so just seeing a friendly face back then was nice.
