Although Chocolate Does Contain Caffeine

, , , | Right | December 10, 2018

(I’m the idiot customer in this one. I’m ordering my drink after much deliberation, having already held up the queue for a good minute longer than I needed to purely because I am exhausted and flustered.)

Me: “Umm… Okay, I think I’ll have a salted caramel hot chocolate, please.”

Barista: “Sure thing.”

(He gives me a friendly smile; he has been patient throughout.)

Me: *relaxing enough to suddenly realize I missed something important* “Oh! Make sure it’s decaf, please. I’ve not been sleeping well, and the last thing I need is to make it worse.”

Barista: *doesn’t have the heart to point out that there’s no caffeine in a hot chocolate* “Sure thing, hon.”

Me: *super relieved, and relaxes enough to work out my own error* “Sorry…”

Barista: “Don’t worry about it; we all have those days.” *gives me another awesome smile and a free chocolate flake*

(Thank God for the kindness of strangers.)
