Be a Better Customer: How to Treat the Essential Workers Who Serve Us in the Pandemic

Courtenay Rollwagen is back on The Localist this week to talk about supporting essential workers during the pandemic. Courtenay and Carrie give great tips on how to be a better customer, including best practices for ordering food, what to pay attention to while out and about, and what to do when you see a customer behaving poorly. The customer is not always right during a pandemic, and Courtenay and Carrie point out reasons why some things may have changed at your favorite local spot. They wrap up with a few golden rules: tip well, have a sense of humor, and be kind!
