I Knew You Were a Creative

I Knew You Were a Creative

Have you ever seen someone out of context and it takes just a microsecond to register? That happened to me on Sunday.

I was sitting with Shawn, Andy and a few others at a table at the Hilton in Austin at SXSW. Up walks L.

“It’s so great to see you guys here,” she said. I got up and she hugged me.

‘Wow, it’s so amazing to see you here,” I said. “I knew you were a creative.”

You see, L was our favorite server at Parc Cafe in Philadelphia. The IFRACTAL crew would have breakfast there every Friday. We always asked for L to be at our table. She knew what everyone wanted and was the best at her job. We really liked her.

Fast forward to Sunday. L graduated from college in September and got a job in marketing. She was down for the show. She’s doing really great and is knocking it out of the park at her company.

We were lucky to get to know her at our favorite cafe. Now we’ll get to know her as a professional in a new way.

You know those people who work in those service jobs? They’re smart. Savvy. You’re lucky when you have them.

Here’s a preview of a great movie I saw last night at SXSW called The Parking Lot Movie. This will show you some really smart people in an industry that you probably don’t even think about.
