Welcome to the Lighter Side of Coffee group. We would love to hear your most embarrassing coffee moment.
Here's mine so far...
We used to have a couple that would come in almost daily. They were about mid-thirties, claimed to be just friends, but somehow, mysteriously, they would always end up making out tough with no regard for who was around. They would order a 24oz drip and refill it 3-4 times a visit. They had this corner of the shop that they would always sit in. We ended up nicknaming it "The Hot Corner". One day, they came in and were doing their normal routine, but had decided to buy a sandwich that day. As I was heating it up, I began to tell our newest staff member about this couple. I went on to tell him how they always come in and get a 24oz drip coffee, that they sit and make out off and on and that we had nicknamed the corner they sit in "The Hot Corner". To my horror, I turned around and saw the lady standing there right behind me, waiting for her sandwich. I had thought she went to sit down. She said seriously, "Were you talking about me?" I turned completely red faced and replied, "Yeah, no, yeah...I was just telling our newest recruit about you guys...and how great it is having you here...You guys are cool." To which she replied, "And how we make out?"
Moral of the story: Don't talk about people when they're behind your back.
