Laziness, Uh… Finds A Way

, , , , , | Working | November 20, 2021

I go to an unfamiliar coffee shop. A server is at the counter but she’s facing away from me.

Me: “Excuse me.”

She doesn’t even turn around; she holds up a finger indicating for me to wait. I wait and I wait.

Me: “Can I order? Or not?”

Server: “Oh, I’m so sorry. I thought you were someone else who works here.”

Me: “Okay. I’d like a medium latte to go, please.”

Server: “What size?”

Me: “Medium.”

Server: “Sitting in?”

Me: “No. To go, please.”

Server: “Any syrups?”

Me: “No, thank you.”

Server: “Can I interest you in a cookie or cake?”

Me: “Just the coffee, please.”

Server: “We have a range of cups on offer at the moment.”

Me: “I just want my coffee, please. I’m trying to get to work.”

Server: “We’re all busy, buddy.”

I look around the shop; we are alone and the car park was empty.

Me: “You’re clearly not. I wonder why.”
