Magic money cards buy coffee

Posted on Wed, Aug 8, 2012 at 4:55 PM

I hope someone got to enjoy that latte, the optimistic colour pallet of your interior, the fashionably uncomfortable swivel chairs, your attractive employees, and the Bodumesque tea pots. I hope you give your next patron the option of paying for this service with modern day magic money cards. Yes, I understand the mystical Ethernet wires were tangled. You are completely relieved of the responsibility of controlling the whims of the universe, but perhaps you could alert your patrons of this anomaly. Preferably before they ponder the expansive menu and declare their order to the barista, eagerly hand not one, but two magic money cards (yes, they were worthy), and have them refused (all the while the espresso blood runs). I understand, too, if your pretty little slaves overlook this tiny detail. But I didn't see the necessity of being directed half a kilometre away to my magic money card's home base, only to return to a cold latte, with a stain between each arm, and change doomed for the vortex under the car seat. Perhaps you should have fixed your folly by giving me the latte anyway. —Caffeine Free
