It's all in the shoes

A couple of days ago I followed an much taller and older man into Starbucks.  I noticed is beat up clothes and his nice leather dress shoes.  Immediately I thought about how the shoes make the man and my notions were confirmed when I heard him order.  He spoke with an aristocratic Italian accent as he ordered 4 coffees and 2 hot chocolates.  Immediately I penned him for being the boss and he was getting hot beverages for his staff who were working early on Saturday morning.  I liked how he talked assuredly when he ordered.  He didn't ask for the coffees, but ordered them.  I think he is used to ordering people around.  Nice.  I want to learn that skill.
