I went on a Tuesday afternoon. I waited with one person ahead of me. I should have figured it out when I saw only one girl working there and she was hovering over the flip chart of how to make drinks. I waited and waited and waited. She did not know how to process a gift card. She made a mistake and then had to figure out how to correct it. She then went off to make some complicated drink - a non fat latte I beieve. After 5 mintues I left and went shopping. I came back a few mintues later.
She was still hovering over the recipe booklet. Oh no - the guy ahead of me when he was finnally served ordered an egg nog latte. I doomed I thought!. She wasn't sure if they had eggnog. She wasn't sure what month it was. I was desperate for coffee. I asked if she could quickly pour me a brewed coffee as I held out a shiny toonie, before she attempted the eggnnog version of mount Everest. She said I had to wait. I waited and steamed more than her latte vesuvius. She wore more than she made. Finally I asked for a tall Pike - that's it. I was Like $1.96. I had to ask for my 4 cents when she just closed the till on my toonie and started to walk away. It was principal then. When I got to my car, I tasted the coffee. It was some nasty dark burnt stuff. I chucked it out and went home to make my own coffee.
