H2-D’oh! Part 7

, , , | Right | June 28, 2019

(I work in a coffee shop and we sell our iced beverages in clear cups. We are very busy as it is a holiday. I am on bar making drinks and calling them out as I finish, including size, the drink name, and the name that was given when the person ordered. There are a couple of drinks sitting on the hand-off plane that haven’t been collected yet, which isn’t unusual. A man comes up and picks up a drink and walks off with it which, again, isn’t unusual. A few minutes later he comes back.)

Customer: *holding a large, clear, iced cup* “I ordered a caramel macchiato! This tastes nothing like a caramel macchiato!”

Me: “Are you [Customer]?”

Customer: “Yes?”

Me: “Your drink is right there, sir.”

(I indicate the hand-off plane with a large caramel macchiato waiting to be picked up with the customer’s name on it.)

Customer: “Well, next time make sure I get the right drink the first time! What is this, anyway? I’ve never, in my life, tasted anything like it before! Why would you even sell this?”

(I look at the drink in the clear cup — the clear liquid in the clear cup.)

Me: “Sir, we don’t charge for glasses of water.”
