Preferrd Customer -

In the neighborhood...

Going home on the bus, Steve Fergaster was troubled. Ever since the grocery store had given Steve a Preferred Customer Card he had felt a fondness for the employees there. And he was sure they liked him better than their other customers.

But today in the check-out line, Steve noticed another man ahead of him who also had a Preferred Customer Card. Steve was puzzled. The other man didn't seem very special. Indeed, he looked rather ordinary.

As Steve took the elevator up to his apartment, he thought about the cashier and how she had smiled at the other man. And how the box boy had bagged the other man's groceries and told him to have a nice day. And it was all very confusing to Steve.
