A Kind-achinno

, , , , | Right | September 14, 2020

I visit the same coffee shop on a regular basis and am on good terms with the staff there. One day, I leave my purse at home and this happens:

Cashier: “Regular cappuccino?”

Me: “No, I forgot my purse so won’t have a coffee. Thought I’d still drop in and say hello, though.”

Cashier: “Oh, no! Have a coffee anyway! Here…”

The cashier hands me the cappuccino his colleague has been making in the meantime.

Me: “Oh, thank you! I’ll come back tomorrow and pay for it.”

I do as promised and return the next day with money for my coffee.

Cashier: “What are you doing?! We weren’t actually expecting you to come back and pay!”

Me: “But I said I would…”

Cashier: “Well, tough. We’re not taking any money from you.”

Me: “But I…”

Cashier: “No! Go away!”

Shocked, I did as he told me and left, but not before I dropped my money in the tip jar, as he wouldn’t take it for the register!
