Brian Avey is a server at Buffalo Wild Wings in Tacoma, Washington. In case you know nothing about Washington, here on the west side of the state, we are home to several Military bases, the closest being Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Often, when I was a server, it was not uncommon to have 4-5 tables of men and women in camo having a quick lunch during the day. This, however, is a different kind of story – and how one server’s act of kindness has gone viral:
A Military Woman came into my work today for Lunch, she ordered a Blue Moon and a Corona, I told her she could only do one beer at a time, She said the Corona was for her brother who died in Iraq and I won’t be drinking it… It just sat next her at a empty seat her entire Lunch… When I brought her bill I told her Buffalo Wild Wings will be buying that beer… This is what she wrote on her credit card slip… After she left, I didn’t have the heart to dump the beer out and throw it away, so I put it on top of the cooler next the American Flag… When I showed my boss his response was Amazing… He said “That’s Fine, just do me a favor, put a fresh Lime in it Every Morning”…
Thank you, Mr. Avey. You are one hell of a guy.
