I’m not even kidding. I’m almost at a loss, and after reading it four times, I still can’t really figure out whose side I’m coming down on.
I can really see it both ways — yeah, the customer theoretically is king, but then again, there are certain protocols.
Here, check this out for yourself, and get back to me.
My initial reaction is, “You’re ALL guilty of extreme douchebaggery.” However, in keeping with “kinder, gentler Jacque Jo” I’m willing to hear this out. I’ve read both blogs that are involved in this dispute.
But, still — there’s a part of me that can’t shake my gut feeling of, “J tapdancing C, it’s just coffee.”
(In the interest of full disclosure, I say that as a non-coffee drinker. I did, however, after reading this say, “You wouldn’t go into a restaurant noted for its high-quality pinot noir and say, ‘hey, pally, can I have a cup of ice for this?'” Maybe I’m pro-Murky, and that may put me in the minority.)
