Caribou Coffee; Rochester, Minnesota; Friday, 16th February 2012

I was sitting in the Caribou Coffee, drinking my Green Tea and studying.

I kindly man entered, ordered a cup of “dark roast”, and sat at a table to drink the coffee.

He made a few telephone calls.

He rose to leave, went to the counter to ask that his cup of coffee be “topped up.”

He said that that would make him “happy.”

Five minutes after he left, the barista said to her colleague: “I would be happy if he never came back.”

Thought I: what will she say of me after I have left Caribou Coffee?
