If you ever go to the Sweet Peppers in Laurel, I bet you’ve been waited on by a guy named Brad before. Brad is really, truly, the most enthusiastic and friendly person you’re likely to meet. When you walk in the door, he knows what drinks you always get and he’ll have them waiting at your favorite table before you’ve even placed the order, and not only that, but he always gets the extra croutons for me before we’ve even been seated. He always remembers the last time you came and asks where you’ve been and what you’ve been doing since then.
