Baristas Love Bureau-crazy

| Working | September 28, 2012

(I walk up to a popular coffee chain’s kiosk, which has a two metre poster on one side promoting their frozen Italian lemonade.)

Me: “I’d like the frozen Italian Lemonade, please.”

Barista: “Oh, we don’t do those.”

Me: “Huh? I had one from here the other day. And I can see one just there.”

Barista: “We did do them, but they’re a summer promotion. They finished two days ago, so even though we do have them, I’m not allowed to sell one to you.”

Me: “Oh, okay. I’ll have a latte then. Not meaning to be rude, but you should probably change the poster on that board if the promotion has finished.”

Barista: “Oh no, the poster doesn’t change until next weekend.”

Me: “Even though the promotion is over and you can’t sell the product?”

Barista: *brightly* “Yes!”
