Drive thru: Wrong Coffee Order Don’t Be Chai….

If At First You Don’t Succeed, Chai Again, Part 6

(My husband and I stop at a drive-thru coffee shop for drinks. I don’t drink coffee, but I love this shop’s chai lattes, so I ask for one.)

Husband: “Can we have a medium, decaf, chai vanilla latte and a small peppermint mocha?”Worker: “Sure! That will be [price] at the window!”(We pull forward, pay, get our drinks, and pull off. I take my first sip and taste nothing but coffee.)

Worker: “Sure! That will be [price] at the window!”(We pull forward, pay, get our drinks, and pull off. I take my first sip and taste nothing but coffee.)

Me: “This has coffee in it.”

Husband: “What? I’m sorry. Why would they put coffee in it?”

Me: “Maybe because you said, ‘latte’? I mean, that’s what it’s called, but maybe that confused her?”(We drive back through and pull up to the window.)

Worker: *looking confused* “Can I help you?”

Me: “There was coffee in my chai.”

Worker: “Yeah. You asked for a decaf chai. Decaf means coffee, so I thought you wanted decaf espresso in it.”
Me: “No… I hate coffee. Chai is black tea which has caffeine, so I just wanted that decaf.”Worker: “So… that’s just regular chai.”

Me: “Yes, but without caffeine?”
Worker: “So… that’s just regular chai.”

Me: “Yes, but without caffeine?”

Worker: *still seeming confused* “So… just a regular chai?”Me: *giving up* “Please just give me a vanilla chai, no coffee.”(To her credit, she did upgrade me to a large, and there was no coffee in my second order. But how do you work at a coffee shop and not know that tea has caffeine?)

    1. I know really honestly nuts! LoL ! Coffee can be complicated. (especially when your careless or lacking knowledge about the product) and wanting fast service adds to the craziness. Maybe they were still asleep or just plain old tired. Hahaha! Thanks Michael for commenting!

  1. What surprises me in this whole episode is that if you don’t want caffeine, then why do you want to drink something which naturally has caffeine in it? Both tea and coffee contains natural caffeine. So the moment you ask “de-caffienated”, be aware that it is something artificial. It is like ordering soda without the carbon dioxide. I believe this blog provides rich information about coffee. You should try and spread some awareness. 🙂
