Hard To Drink In This Much Stupid

| Seattle, WA, USA | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I am the customer in this story. I’m in a coffee shop and there is a man in front me who has just rattled out a majorly complex iced coffee order with a myriad of flavor sauces, even going so far as to request a layer of whipped cream in the middle of the drink.)

Cashier: “All right, that’ll be [price]. Your order might take a moment.”

Customer: “That’s fine.”

(I order my own coffee, which is just a mocha latte, without whipped cream. The barista finishes my drink first, as it’s much simpler. It’s in a paper cup, as it’s hot, whereas his is being seen prepared in a clear plastic cup, as it’s iced.)

Barista: “Mocha latte for [My Name]!”

(The customer with the long order swoops in before I can grab my drink, swiping it off the counter and taking a sip immediately.)

Customer: “This is perfect! Thank you so much!”

(He then runs out the door before either of us can speak.)

Me: “Did he just..?”

Barista: “… I’ll make you another drink.”
