HOT Coffee Please

Two months since the last post... Unforgiveable. MB's only excuse is being too stretched since agreeing to work full time until June and working at a screen all day is not conducive to interacting with the PC after hours.

MB and first born daughter dropped into Target today during their lunch hour to check out what all the fuss was about with the new Stella McCartney fashions in store. Nice gear if you are an anorexic size 8 and 6 feet tall. MB did manage to find a silk scarf as well as a t-shirt that might fit, if it doesn't she can auction it off on Ebay.

After the rummaging amongst the racks a flat white was in order. FBD kindly went to order them so her elderly Mummy could rest. FBD remembered to ask for hot coffee, to which the Crunchie* behind the counter responded with the bleeding obvious "Our coffee is always hot". FBD then asked again if the Crunchie could make sure the coffee was extra-hot, as that's how Mum likes it. The Crunchie replies, "Oh OK, a lot of OLD people ask for that." After all that sparring with the Crunchie the coffee was only just hot.
*Crunchie - Blond on the inside, brown outside.

I love how you find just fitting world for those people that manage to wreck our nerves on a day-to-day basis.

Mrs BB agrees with your Stella comments. Surely so many people can't be wrong?
At least our hard-earned didn't add to her pile.
I guess it depends where you went.
Sounds like a Starbucks moment.
At least at Gloria Jeans they make you feel as though the $12 for two cups is value.
Did she say "Like, it is so not so not hot (giggle giggle)". If so, that girl works near me
