Recent trips to the store have included:

  • Ordering a chocolate coconut donut and a chocolate dip donut and ending up with two plain donuts
  • Ordering a black coffee and getting a coffee with two creams
  • Ordering a blueberry muffin and getting a bran muffin

And then there is my very favourite one, not a recent one, but the one that I love the most:

  • Ordering a decaf tea and being asked if that was a mix of decaf coffee and regular tea

We don’t mumble. We don’t slur our words. We make a point to enunciate. And yet … we do not get what we want. We have drawn the line in the sand, and the line says that we cannot support stupidity anymore.

Except that we have one more free coffee to cash in on.
