Well, I’ll be darned


“How may I meet your refreshment needs?”

Recently I posted a piece of flash fiction about a disillusioned armed robber attempting to hold up a coffee shop and being bewildered by the whole affair.

You can read ‘Caffeine Low’ here.

This piece was just meant as a joke, an exaggeration of reality. But then I went to Starbucks the other day and saw this sign on the counter and earned some looks from the server when I creased up laughing.

Apparently ‘Caffeine Low’ was closer to reality than I thought!
