An Interesting Start To The Morning…
I started the day with a jaw dropping, “Is this really happening moment?” I skipped my normal stop at the gas station in my neighborhood in favor of Circle K. I was craving their coffee. They just have a better selection. I set my eyes on the frozen cappuccino machine and my body sighed. This was it. This was the caffeine jolt that was going to kick start my Wednesday! As I perused the counters looking for a cup suitable for my caffeinated libation, I only found regular coffee cups with the flip top lids. Totally not suitable for a frozen concoction. So I took my happy self over to the carbonated beverages and snagged a hefty sixteen ounce Thirst Buster cup and filled it to the brim. I topped it with one of the color coordinated blue straws and headed to the check out counter where the woman promptly told me, “You can’t do that!”
“Can’t do what?”, I asked.
She said, “You can’t used a Coke cup for coffee. You have to use Coke for Coke, coffee for coffee and Icee for Icee.”
What?!?!?! I guess she missed the fact it was indeed a frozen cappuccino. So, I decided to play along or at least, play nice… for the time being.
“What would you like me to do ma’am? Pour it over into a coffee cup?”, I asked politely glancing back to the customers behind me.
“No!”, she shrieked. “But, I’ll have to charge you for a large.”
I replied, with a slight smirk that I just couldn’t help, “You do what you have to do.” I could hear a chorus of tittering laughter behind me. I’m down with being serious about your job, but this takes the cake!
Now, I don’t think I’m that hard to deal with. But seriously, I understand the concept of coffee in a coffee cup, but surely, frozen cappuccino has to be an exception. As I swiped my debit card, I just prayed it went through!
Welcome to Wednesday! Have a great day!
