3. Most soy drinkers aren’t vegan or lactose intolerant. They’re just pretentious.


4. If you have to argue with a customer about why they can’t have a free cup, fork or spoon one  more time – you  will kill someone

8.  You worry there is a phantom coffee drinker who steals drinks when you aren’t looking

9. You’ve used the phrase ‘We don’t have red chai – only spiced, vanilla or green’

10. You know that you make worse coffee than Ground, but hey, the jobs easier

11. You know the real, actual, wounding pain of a broken card machine


12. You have at least one customer who you despise, and refuse to serve out of principle

13. You’ve eaten a floor muffin


14. You secretly hope custom is slow so that you can return in a blaze of glory and pilfer wastage
