I pretty much drink one coffee a day. An extra-large-double-double. Sometimes I’ll go for a second one. I buy my coffee at Robin’s Donuts, mostly. Sometimes at Timothy’s.
The following has happened to me four times so far: Robins Girl, when filling my cup, empties a pot of coffee. My cup will be, roughly, 3/4 or 4/5 full. Rather than getting a new pot, she asks me if i want it topped up, or if that’s enough.
I honestly don’t understand the question. It’s not the extra-large cup that I’m interested in purchasing. It’s the coffee that goes into it. I don’t want a “large” amount of coffee in an extra-large cup. I want an extra-large amount of coffee.
So, yes, I want it topped up.
Not the swiftest service at that Robin’s on the Ave. Also, I have to repeat my order at least twice on a regular basis. Does anyone else have this problem. I think the next time I go in I’m going to give my order perfectly enuciated, twice, before they can ask me to repeat it.
I don’t have that problem, but the Three-Quarters Full Girl always takes a stab at guessing my order before I give it. She always gets it wrong.
“What are you? Large?” she’ll ask.
“No. Extra-large. Double double,” I’ll say.
Pretty much every day.
Her not knowing your usual is your usual.
