I think I'm going soft in the head or I am being overtaken by a virus which takes over your mind and converts you into an emotional wreck ....
Don't beleive me?
I present the following:
I was in a coffee shop with a friend last week and our order was taken by a new trainee who didn't know her lemon ice tea from her frozen granitas. And after taking her own sweet time and finally understood the order, I did NOT give her a hard time. Yes. I refrained from telling her off and did not make sure that she left her job and did not force her to look for an alternate career at Pizza Hut.
I actually let her SERVE us the beverages. OMFG.
Two days later, at another coffee shop, with another set of friends, a barista took our order. And I clearly told him that I want my cappuccino with (please note that I said WITH) an extra shot of espresso and that server (I shan't call him a barista cause clearly he needed a lesson in his lattes and mochas) had the gall to come back and ask if I actually wanted the espresso in my drink. And instead of giving him a lecture on the use of the word "with" and frivolity of ordering an espresso shot outside of another drink, all I did was just nod my head in answer to his question.
Just. a. head. nod.
That's like treason in WhipperSnapperland. T-R-E-A-S-O-N.
Therefore, I conclude that a virus has taken over me. Yes. As hollywood has proven time and again, a virus like this takes over one person and then spreads to the whole human race. (C'mon, was I the only one forced to sit through the agonizing second season of heroes?)
And then strange things start to happen.
Like having a caffe macchiato with foamed *gasp* *gasp* milk??
Or allowing a bartender to serve a martini with vodka?
Or not judging someone who wears a bluetooth headset like a hearing aid?
Or not telling parents of rude kids that their children are less trained than my pets??
Oh! the Humanity .....
I can't let this happen. Nay ... I won't let this happen. I'm going to cure myself of such deviant behavior and protect the human race.
Move over global warming. The world's got a new foe.
