Has A Problem Espresso-ing Themself, Part 2

| Ann Arbor, MI, USA | Extra Stupid

(I’m making a marshmallow latte at the pick-up end of the counter. The customer watches me as I make the drink.)

Customer: “Is this my mocha?”

Me: “It’s your drink, but it’s not a mocha. A mocha is a latte with chocolate. This is a latte with caramel and marshmallow. I can add chocolate if you’d like.”

Customer: “No, I don’t want chocolate. I just want my mocha!”

Me: “I can’t give you a mocha without chocolate. I think you mean latte. This is a latte.”

Customer: “No, I don’t want a latte! I want a mocha! You understand?”

Me: “Would you like me to make you a mocha instead of this, then?”

Customer: “Yeah, but I don’t want a latte, and I don’t want chocolate. I just want espresso with steamed milk, caramel, and marshmallow. Just like I ordered!”

(By this point, the drink has been done for a while, exactly as described.)

Me: *staring at drink for a second* “Here’s your mocha.”

Customer: “Finally! Thank you!”

(I am clearing off the tables on the deck of the restaurant because it has just started raining. Most people have moved inside.)

Customer: “Are you guys kicking us off the deck?”

Me: “No, sir, you are welcome to stay out here as long as you wish.”

Customer: “In that case, can you move one of the tables with the umbrellas so they cover my wife?”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but the tables are bolted down to the deck and I can’t move them.”

Customer: “The tables…they don’t move? But this is America!”

Customer: “Well, how can I make it feed eight?”

Me: “Perhaps you can order more than one?”
