You’re both waiting for your morning coffee, and today seems like it’s busier than usual. She’s standing in front of you, and she looks like she needs a tall cup of joe, stat. You’ve seen her at the store before, but you never thought to talk to her because it would seem too forward.

- I’m looking for a new coffee order to shake things up. What kind do you get?
- Do you think if I tell them it’s my half birthday, they’ll give me half a cup for free?
- Do you work around here?
- Would it be terribly forward if I paid for your drink? I’m trying to do a nice deed every day.

- Do you have any recommendations for this place?
- Excuse me, I have a gift card I’m trying to use up. Would you mind if I paid for your drink?
- Do you ever feel like you’re still dreaming when you come here? I feel like you’re not even real right now.
