I have often wondered why payment software doesn’t have the option of extracting the first name from the credit card and using it for the order. Or highlight the first name for the person taking the order. When I bought coffee this morning, there was quite a bit of background noise and when the person taking the order didn’t understand my name I pointed to it on my credit card.
Coffee habits: lately I take my Snowpeak cup to coffeeshops to get it filled with drip coffee AND I also order a cortado/gibraltar in a glass to have there. I drink the cortado and take the cup with me. It works. :-)
