The shouts continue.
“Extra caramel macchiato!”. “Grande, triple latte chai!”. “A ‘skinny’ decaf Frap, light ice!”.
“…three ‘pumps’, with extra ‘room’ please?”
And nobody’s embarrassed!
All these selfish inhalations, spoiled preferences, demands. How do they purge themselves? Expel such waste?
The stupid, herd-like slobs! All waiting docilely in line for “coffee”…filling up the popcorn store (…a ‘popcorn store’!), the yogurt shops…
“Can I just…taste…the peanut butter pecan fudge?”, rude tongue and hands out.
Friday afternoons through Monday. Most nights through the week! I watch them preen and prate, and sate themselves…
Thank God I date alone.
