This is hilarious.
Tonight I went to see my good friend Robyn while she was at work out in Langford and I wanted to surprise her with a coffee. Well, coffee for me, hot chocolate for her, as was the norm when we worked together at ATB Financial in Calgary. So I am waiting, freezing, in the drive thru for Starbucks, when I ordered:
One skinny latté with sugarfree vanilla and one hot chocolate with no whip.
I get to the actual pickup window and the girl, clearly embarrassed, says:
I was doing something else when I took your order and forgot to punch it in so what was it again? I am so embarrassed (see I made an astute observation, she even admitted the embarrassment).
I repeated and took out by debit card and she said
No, it was my stupidity that’s making you wait so long so these drinks are free.
Wow. That’s unreal and a total dream come true… so I took them and went happily on my way. So pumped to tell Robyn.
Until I got out of the car at the RR and proceeded to drop and explode my latté onto the pavement…and all over my newly cleaned car.
I did manage to save the hot chocolate so the good deed wasn’t totally lost.
I just really wanted that stinkin’ latté, ya know?
