H2-Woah, Part 6

, , , | Right | September 6, 2020

I work as a barista in a coffee shop where we got a lot of… odd characters. A guy walks in, uses the restroom, and then looks at the bar with the water dispenser and sugar syrups on it. The following interaction with my coworker occurs:

Customer: *Completely serious* “So, all these syrups, are they for flavoring the water?”

Coworker: “Uh, well, no, they’re sugar. For the coffee.”

Customer: “Oh, okay.” *Pause* “Can you put them in the water?”

Coworker: “I guess so? It would just be sugar water, though.”

Customer: “Oh, okay.”

He picks up a half-and-half container.

Customer: “Is this tea?”

Coworker: “No, that’s cream. For the coffee.”

Customer: “Oh, okay.” 

The guy waited until my coworker went back into kitchen and then poured some cream into a water cup and tried it. Deciding he liked it, he poured THE WHOLE CONTAINER into his cup, added some syrup, put a sleeve on the (cold) cup, and walked out, saying, “Thanks, dude!”
