Cappuccino-No-No, Part 4

, , , , | Right | December 10, 2021

A few coworkers and I are grabbing a coffee from the on-site coffee shop. I’m first in line.

Me: “Can I get a flat white. [Coworker #1], what do you want?”

Coworker #1: “Oh, thanks, a latte.”

I motion to [Coworker #2].

Coworker #2: “Black coffee, thanks!”

Some Random Guy: “I’ll have a cappuccino.”

We all look at him; I shake my head at the cashier.

Cashier: “Okay, sir, I will get yours in a second.”

I pay for ours and move around to the collection point. The random guy goes to follow.

Cashier: “Err… excuse me, sir, you need to pay for your coffee.”

Some Random Guy: “Oh, he’s paid.” *Gestures to me*

Cashier: “He didn’t. You need to pay for your coffee.”

The guy puts his hands on his hips.

Some Random Guy: “Well, I don’t want it, then.”

Cashier: “Sure.* *To the other worker* “Cancel the cappuccino.”

He stood there, hands on his hips, staring at me and then the cashier, furious. He was still there when we collected our coffees and left.

We all laughed about it and it became the running joke to “not forget the cappuccino” when we go out.
