I used to work at a coffee shop – it was my first job, actually. I was pretty lousy at it because I didn’t actually drink coffee myself (never much cared for the taste), so when people would ask for recommendations I was about as useful as a vegan at a deli.
Still, most of the customers were perfectly pleasant and understanding, but sometimes, just every once in a while, someone would come in with an absolutely wild and seemingly dangerous order.
I thought perhaps I was alone in this experience, but this wild Tumblr thread proves that I was not.
