Trying out a new coffee place by our house . . . I order an iced coffee and pay $4.50 for the only size they have, about the size of a Starbucks grande, which at Starbucks is less than three bucks.
I take the coffee over to the condiment station, taste it and decide to add some sugar.
The proprietor surprises me by walking up and saying “Taste it first before you add sugar.”
“I did taste it,” I assure him.
“Does it need sugar?”
“That probably depends on who’s drinking it. If I’m drinking it, it’s going to need a little sugar.”
I think I’ll stick with Starbucks. The coffee is cheaper and the staff lets me do whatever I want with it, no questions asked.
