Dear Dunkin Donuts Cashier,

Dear Dunkin Donuts Cashier,

Please do not ask me what I want to order when I am 10 feet away from you and unable to get any closer due to the crush of people who are still at the counter ahead of me, picking up their coffee and whatnot before they make their way out. I do not appreciate having to yell my order to be heard. On that note, please please do not ask for my order and then turn to your co-worker and strike up a conversation, so that I not only have to yell what I want, I have to do it twice. And finally, once I *have* successfully placed my order - twice, both times in a yell - please, please, please do not input it onto your computer, deliver half of it (thankfully, the caffeinated half) and then promptly decide to take a break, along with all of the rest of your co-workers, leaving me and the three people behind me waiting for our food.

Thanks ever so much!

Signed,
I-don't-think-it's-too-much-to-ask-for-someone-in-the-service-industry-to-actually-provide-some-service

Dear Cashier, Read my lips: Glock 9mm.

Ah...wait...did I say that out loud?

Seriously, why do they ask "can I help you?" and then start talking to someone else. Did they think that the answer would be, "no, thanks. I'm just looking"?
