I'm sick of it

Morning Coffee

The following is
my conversation with
the Tim Hortons lady
this morning - verbatim!

Hi can I help you?

Me: Hi, can I get a medium hazel nut iced coffee,
milk, 2 sugars on the light side.

Lady: Sure

*long pause*

Lady: OKay you wanted that dark?

Me: No Light

Lady: Light with cream

Me: No Milk

Lady: No Sugar?


Lady: Did you want a flavor?

Me: Yeah.... hazel nut!

I think it has finally come to the point where you should consider making your own coffee at home!

I don't think I could deal with this daily- I think her hairnet is a bit too tight...

Annie...I was going to tell her the same thing

Go buy that expensive coffee machine that my mother has and make it at home

So what did U end up getting?

Jen said...

I have that expensive coffee machine
I'm just wicked lazy

She got the coffee right
in the end

Scarlet said...

Do you fucking mumble?!?!?!

first the paver guy, now the coffee lady. I see a pattern forming here.

Hmmmmmmmm...Jen mumble? Perhaps that is the problem.. maybe only the people that are around you all the time hear U clearly...Remember how we used to talk to each other? Nobody knew what the hell we were saying including our husbands

Scarlet said...


Thats not because of mumbling.
Thats Selective Listening.

Jen said...


I do mumble..
But when I order
my coffee I'm
all business!

Loud & Clear!

I went to Dunkin Donuts today ... pull up at 6am, my Dunkin team sees me and starts making my Iced Coffee and Bagel before I even have to utter a word. Im in and out in about 90 seconds.

It's good to be the King

I'm on the poor woman's side. Can you imagine all the special orders she has to deal with every morning?
1) Medium hazelnut iced coffee, milk, 2 sugars on the light side
2) Caramel machiato, fill it up 3/4 of the way, light on the milk, light on the coffee, extra caramel and extra foam, 1 Sugar in the Raw, 1 regular sugar.
3) Large cup of 1/2 hazelnut-1/2 Colombian blend, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 1/2 Half and Half and 1/2 milk.
It's a wonder these people aren't packing handguns!

That happens to me all the time at Dunkin Donuts. I don't mean to be rude, but that's their stinkin job. Get it right.

Scarlet said... have a point,,BUT..she has those orders one at a time.
Jen didn't ask for all that.

Mister G - I like your Resident Evil 4!!

Jen - Enjoy your shitty coffee with your wrongly prepared bagel. And know that somewhere in the distance, Skinny Bitch is standing behind you.

or...go here for help

Mel said...

I am just jealous you have a Tim's nearby! I am addicted and have to order it online and brew it at home. not the same, but WAY better than Folgers!

No one listens to me either...I think its because I am short.

Jen said...

Skinny Bitch..
she's everywhere you want to be!

Jen said...

There is a Dunkin Donuts on every corner in this state, everyone is obsessed with it. Tim Horton's isn't as popular we only have a few here & there, but I like the coffee much better from Tim's!

Dale said...

There's a Horton's everywhere you look here and where there's no physical store, you might find one of these.
