Missing Some Teeth But They Can Still Bite Back

, , , , | Working | November 3, 2021

I am a regular at this coffee shop — so much so that they start making my order as soon as they see me walk in. I got my wisdom teeth out, and as my regular drink needed a straw, the barista and I had to do some brainstorming to figure out a way for me to be able to still have my drink.

Fast forward about two weeks. I’m still on the no-straw diet and I go into the shop to see that they are having some kind of corporate inspection.

This new guy takes my order and starts making my drink exactly how I need it. Now, to be fair, this drink looks really weird. It is in too big of a cup, it has the wrong lid, and it is just a mess. This corporate bigwig comes up and starts chewing this poor employee out.

Bigwig: “This drink is all wrong! You’ll be fired for this!”

I’m not a very big person but I lean as far over the counter as I can and get up in this guy’s face.

Me: “Actually, this employee is following my instructions to the letter.”

Apparently, I was scary, because he wilted and mumbled an apology to the employee and walked away.
