I love my job more than you'd ever know, but there are some things that happen on a daily basis that bring humor into our day.
When customers come in and try to order a venti or a grande
You came to a local owned coffee shop. You are not in the corporate coffee world anymore. We have small, medium and large.
When you talk on the phone while ordering.
This would usually be obvious to customers, but you would be surprised.
When you throw your money at me.
We are not a fan of this but hey, at least you have your money.
Know what you are ordering when you get in line.
We do have a lot of options on our menu, but we also have take out menus that you can step aside with. When you don't know what you want, sometimes it creates a line behind you.
Not having your money ready.
You should have probably counted all that change at the bottom of your purse before you got in line. I've been a victim of this before though.
Hovering over us while we are making your food.
We get the customers that sometimes don't know where to go after they ordered, so I kindly tell them I will bring it out to them when it is ready. Then there are customers that stand and stare in judgement.
When customers call it "expresso"
I don't even drink espresso and I know how to say it right.
There are also things that we really love..
We do love a thank you and appreciate it more than you'd know
We do love when you are really happy with your drink and food
We love our regulars
We love when you chat with us
We love the friendships that we make with the customers
We love making your drink special
Last but not least,
We love meeting different customers everyday and making your experience as pleasant as possible. We are always trying to think of new things to perk your interest. We never want you to leave upset.
You can always count on us to cheer up your day!
