I work at a coffee place in my University’s food court, and we are often open later than other cafe’s on campus. In order to make closing easier, we often shut down our Espresso machine, which is also used to steam milk, a half hour before closing. This takes place when a customer comes up about 5 minutes to close.

Customer: Hi, I’d like a cappuccino please.

Me: I’m sorry, but we’ve closed down our Espresso machine for the night.

Customer: Oh, I’ll take a Caramel Latte.

Me: We actually use the Espresso machine for most hot specialty beverages. I can get you coffee or tea, or any of our cold drinks.

Customer: A steamed hot chocolate?

Me:No. Like I said, coffee or tea.

She still looked confused, and eventually just walked away.
