Rude lady at the coffee shop

She barged in rudely, but the polite barista served her anyway.

I was reading in a local coffee shop yesterday when a woman barged in and announced, “I’ve found money. I need the largest house coffee you have. And I need a lot of room for milk and suger.” I wanted to slap her right there. She clearly hadn’t been taught manners as a child. She didn’t storm out in a hurry, so it’s not as if she needed to be curt to get in and out fast. And then, when she left, she took about 50 paper napkins. It’s too bad the barista was polite to her.
