The fairness of “deserving honors” at the coffee shop.


…Johan and I had gotten to the coffee shop with his fine assistance. He located the door inside, and found an available chair like a professional.

He looked at me as if to ask, “You get coffee while I get the floor?” However, Jonah soon realized that the dog treaties from my pocket were a fair trade.

“It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them.” ~~~ Mark Twain
