Has A Problem Espresso-ing Himself, Part 3

| North Carolina, USA | Food & Drink

(A latte is steamed milk with espresso. Without espresso, it’s just a cup of milk. Our small lattes have two shots of espresso.)

Customer: “I’d like a small latte with a shot of espresso.”

Me: “A single-shot latte?”

Customer: “Yes.”

(My coworker makes the latte and gives it to the man.)

Customer: “Is there a shot of espresso in here?”

Coworker: “Yes, did you want it on the side?”

Customer: “No, I wanted a latte with espresso in it.”

Me: “But you just wanted the one shot, right?”

Customer: “No, I wanted a regular latte with a shot of espresso.”

(I begin thinking maybe he actually wanted a latte with an extra shot to bring the total number of shots to three.)

Me: “So did you want an extra shot on top of the two included shots? Three shots?”

Customer: “Oh no, two is fine.”

(The customer leaves.)

Me: “I still have no idea what he wanted.”

Coworker: “Me either!”
