When Do I Get To Decide When I Will Be Nice?

No matter where you go there is someone, somewhere that is protesting something.

I think it is good that they are able to do that.  But my question is pretty simple.  

When do I get to do what I want to do in the manner that I want to do it.

There is a report that Andre Roberson of the NBA’s Thunder celebrated a new contract worth 30 million dollars a year by going to a place, running up a nearly 500 dollar bill and leaving a 13 dollar tip.  Think that went over well?  Ahhhh no.

OK.  So I go into the local coffee shop for a quick cup of something.  The young woman, was new on the job.  Handled multiple orders well and was pleasent.  When she got to me I gave her my order and she quickly got my order.

She told me how much.  I paid the bill and left a tip.

Her reply?“Oh well thank you sir, but I cannot accept this?”Huh?

Store policy.

So everything goes according to plan and I want to do something nice, I can’t because it’s a store policy.  And, this makes sense how?

When did it become up to the store to decide when I can be nice?
