The New Guy

There is a new person at the coffee shop and he's been given what I deem as inappropriate access to the coffee. No really. He's a ham-fisted beast and has no business near coffee beans. I walk in and the air smells off. I can't explain it any better than that. I have a mild sinus infection but I can still smell something is very wrong with the place. I'm ordering my coffee when I realize the problem.

I turn to the barista making my coffee and say, "The beans are about to burn in the back."

She knows me and my ridiculous nose quite well. I told her once that milk she'd left out on the counter by accident was bad. She had to taste it to see what I meant. She's trusted my judgment ever since. She immediately stops making my coffee and goes to the door leading to the back and yells for the guy back there to check the roasters. He ignores her. I bet you're wondering how I know that? Well, because the smell increases until--yeah he's about to ruin about nine hundred dollars in beans.

I close my computer and go upstairs to the manager's office and stick my head in the door and say, "Hey, did you know you put a lazy ass in charge of your roasters? He's about to burn your beans."

For an old guy he can move VERY fast. He's also a very loud man from Boston. I didn't understand half what he yelled but I did get free coffee for the rest of the year.

Okay, first - I love that icon! Very cool. Second - Wow, are you the hero of this piece or what?! Third - you totally deserve free coffee for the rest of the year. You earned it, and he obviously knows it. (The new guy sounds like a total jerk. I wonder how long he'll have a job?)

*\o/* (Cheers for the hero!!)
