Go run off a cliff

Posted on Wed, May 9, 2012 at 11:16 AM

I was so happy to have a coffee shop and bakery in my neighborhood and I am still glad that I can go read the paper and get a coffee without having to cross the bridge or go to a big chain, but I hate you all for making it impossible for me to step foot in there on Sundays any more.

You know who you are. The three dozen spandex wearing joggers who crowd around the door just inside the place stretching before you go for your run. Then you come back and are unbelievably rude to the incredibly patient staff. You sit down and scream and holler at each other. When you get up you leave half the cafe looking like it is the morning after a keg party.

Worst of all is that almost all of you get your coffee in paper cups even when offered ceramic mugs. You sit there talking about how you wish there were hook up stations so you could buy a hybrid or how you wish the grocery store had more affordable organic produce and yet you drink your giant 20 ounce warm milk drink in a wax lined paper cup instead of a reusable ceramic mug! If you were only there for five minutes (and oh how merciful that would be to the rest of the customers!) and needed to take it to go that would make sense, but you set up camp for two hours down the whole thing only to toss it in the trash on your way out. The guy who orders a two ounce espresso in a to go cup is the most absurd example of this.

I am amazed that none of the staff have thrown a hot cup of coffee in your faces or that none of the other customers have thrown a chair at you. It's great that you want to catch up with friends and drink some coffee (I do too!) but please show other customers and the people who work there a little bit of basic respect!

I am just glad that you can only be bothered to go jogging once a week. —Caffeine Free Sundays For Me
