>Mean Mugging

>Actual conversation in a coffee shop recently.

Me: “Could I get that cappuccino in a mug?”
Barista: “No, you can’t.”
(I pause for a second to see if she was being sarcastic. She wasn’t.)
Me: Oh, are you closing soon?
Barista: We close at eight.
(I glance at the clock and see that it’s just past seven.)
Me: hmm.
(Grudgingly drink my cap from a styrofoam cup with Starbucks style foam.)
