Here’s one for the WTF files:
This morning at Starbucks, I order my standard drink and walk over to the waiting area. As I’m walking up, the barista puts down a drink and calls out, “Grande Nonfat Latte, 1 pump of sugar free hazelnut!”
Holy crap! That’s my drink! And it’s only, like, 20 seconds after I ordered it!
So I picked it up by the cup, not the lid, and asked the barista, “Is this mine? Because that was SUPER fast!”
She asked me what I got and I told her, and she said, “No ,there are two more drinks in front of yours.”
So I said okay and put it back and proceeded to wait.
At which point, this other customer comes up, asks what that drink is, and (upon realizing that it’s hers) proceeds to rip me a new asshole because “You really shouldn’t touch other people’s cups because it’s REALLY dirty.”
When I pointed out that I had only touched the cup, not the lid, I was informed that that didn’t matter and that she had already had the flu once this year and didn’t need it again. And then she demanded that the barista pour her latte into a new cup, one without nasty germs all over it, and started going on and on about how they should get people’s names and announce the drinks that way because it’s more sanitary.
And continuing her rant, she stormed out with her now presumably germ free latte.
Who knew I was such a dirty person?
