Encounter: A Fool Goes for Coffee

Here's a true and short story of a fool that's just too priceless not to share. 
Yesterday I (Rob) stopped in Panera Bread to get bagels for the week. While waiting for them a woman about 50ish got coffee to go and a bagel in a bag. After she paid for them she walked back over to the counter where I was standing and called the manager over. She asked if the manager had any individual cream containers because she was buying the coffee for someone else and she didn't know how they took their coffee. Fair enough.
   Here's where the FOOL part comes in. The manager said "Sure, we have small containers of cream. How many would you like?"
  The customer gazed at the manager like the manager had three heads. The customer said "How should I know? I'm buying it for someone else?" The manager patiently asked again, after explaining the cream was in a small container. The customer again said, "I have no idea." DUH.  She simply could've said two or three. Instead she stood there like an idiot.
   The manager then said, "well, how many cups of coffee did you buy?"
   The customer replied, "Just one."
   So the manager went and got about 4 cream containers and put them in a bag and handed them to the dumb customer.
  GEEZ. These people vote, drive and have children!!! 


Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
