Brewed | Short Story

On a rainy Sunday morning, a woman walked into a coffeehouse. She ordered a simple latte, while the barista was preparing her drink, she decided that he made it wrong and refused to accept the first drink he made. He happily obliged to remake her drink in the new way that she requested. After he made her the drink, she took it and walked back to her table.

She took a few sips of the drink, opened the lid, and looked at the cup in disgust. To her dismay the cup had extra room on top. Even though the room was created by her sips, she took the drink back up to the counter and demanded them to make her another drink with a larger cup. 

Because of their customer policy, they made her a larger drink. This woman was as bitter as the coffee that she drank.

Unfortunately, unknowingly to her the baristas that prepared her drink were going through extremely dark times of their lives. One of them faced the recent death of a parent, the other was struggling financially, unable to pay rent, because of this woman's rude and inconsiderate reaction to a cup of coffee, she was another thorn in the sides of these baristas.
