It's gotten a few thousand retweets and likes on Twitter, and this morning, I learned that the tweet had been screencapped and shared all over Facebook, too.

He goes to a local diner for supper after work most everyday unless a schoolbus needs a repair, or a similar emergency. He likes one of the waitresses, whose nametag says Sally, but everyone calls  her SJ, for Sally Jean.     

I think…
