Please just… don’t say that.

Me: Hi! What can I get for you?

Him: You don’t know by now?

Okay, buddy. First of all, I see you about once  per week. I recognize your face. I remember that once you brought a baby in here. But I see hundreds of people every day. Second, it’s Monday. Have a little decency. Third, you ordered a medium coffee. It is easily the least memorable drink on our menu. So no! I don’t know by now! If you want a list of regulars’ drinks I can rattle off from memory, go here.  I promise! I am a smart lady!

One thought on “Please just… don’t say that.

  1. I work at a coffee shop, and I encounter customers that say the same thing, expecting me to have their order memorized. With most regulars that come multiple times within a day, it’s doable. But the customers that come every few days always say “You still don’t know my order? Other people do.” It’s always in a semi-offensive tone, too.
    I can definitely relate.
