Resist abasement, do more than what is needed.
A train ride. Switzerland, Winter 2014. Yesterday is today.
Waiter (in a strong Italian accent): "Good evening Madam, would you like a coffee, an espresso, a cappuccino?"
Woman: (not audible) The woman demands an explanation.
Waiter: "When I have nothing to do yes, because to be frank I get bored, so I manage to come to you and even ask if you would fancy a coffee. I do this out of my own will, obviously, because it not a part of my duties. But, for someone that wants, justly so, to do something, I don't get lost in the two minutes that takes me to ask if someone wants an espresso or a coffee. All well then, Madam? Good night again. Thank you."
(to another client): "Good evening, a coffee, espresso, cappuccino?"
