Ugh, my husband does something just as bad. He doesn't exactly mumble but orders really fast... "largetwocreamonesugarlargeblackandamapledip" I'm not sure what he's expecting, but only 1 out of 20 people are able to get his order on the first try. Then he's always frustrated when he has to repeat himself two or three times, so he starts saying it really slowly like the person is a moron. I'm like, wouldn't it be faster to say your order slowly and carefully ONCE than to repeat it 3 times fast? I don't understand how someone can order coffee every single day, go through the same experience each and every time, and still expect different results?

I hear ya... I often text my questions in case someone is busy and doesn't have time right that second, but just because I sent it as a text doesn't mean it's unimportant.
As I am sure any cat owner will be able to tell you,
someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
from getting into a box yourself.
