The woman at Table 10 orders a decaf coffee while sharing her salad with her husband. I leave the table and go to take the order at Table 11 right after. Yes, Table 10 is directly next to Table 11. In fact, they are booths, so they are connected to each other. I'm at Table 10 for maybe a couple minutes, then start heading back towards the server alley to get Table 10's coffee.
As I'm walking past, the woman grabs my arm and says,
"Excuuuuuuse me! My COFFEE?!?"
Deep breaths. Deep breaths.
Yes, I was actually just at the table over helping another guest, and now I'm going to get your coffee.
Fake smile. Walk away.
It took all of my strength not to make it a regular coffee....just for fun.
Oh, and that's not all.
Later, I brought the pot over to refill her coffee, and she asked me,
"Is this the same good coffee, or the other stuff?"
It's the other stuff. Just drink it. And leave. Thank you! Have a great day!
