Coffee shop

I was surprised that this happened because since we moved up here from Louisiana, we've not had bad service anywhere. Shreveport gives you an amazingly high tolerance for bad service.

I was in the bookstore with my husband and my son. We decided to go to the in-store coffee shop. My husband ordered his drink, then I ordered mine. The barista looked at my husband and said, "Does that person want whipped cream on her drink?" What? I'm perfectly capable of answering that myself, lady.

So we order my son's Italian cream soda and she AGAIN turns to my husband and says, "Does that person want half-and-half in his drink?"

So I told her yes, THAT PERSON would like half-and-half, that's what makes it a CREAM SODA.

She said, "Oh. I didn't realize it was for you."

Again, WHAT?! It was a really weird way to handle our order, and it was made more jarring because everybody else has been so nice.
