It’s Funny ‘Cause It’s True


From my friends over at Not Always Right:

Has No Problem Espresso-ing Herself, Part 3

Coffee Shop | York, UK

(The cheapest drink we sell is an espresso. Customers often ask for ‘expresso’ because it is the cheapest thing on the prices board, not knowing what the actual drink is.)

Customer: “Can I have an expresso, please?”

Me: “Of course. Can I just check…do you know what an espresso is?”

Customer’s girlfriend: “You serve five kinds of coffee and you don’t know what an expresso is?!”

Me: “No, no. I’m not asking you to explain it to me. I just wanted to check you knew what you were going to get.”

Customer’s girlfriend: “Of course we do! Do we look stupid? God!”

(She stalks off to a table and leaves her boyfriend to wait for his drink.)

Me: “Here’s your espresso, sir. Sorry about the misunderstanding.”

Customer: “That’s okay.”

(There is a long pause as he looks at his drink.)

Customer: “Do you think I could get this in a bigger cup? With some milk?”
