Topic: high-maintenance coffee order == high-maintanence women? (7 msgs / 167 lines)
1) From: Michael Wascher
 I'm just the messenger!
NBC had a news story about it this morning. There's a theory that you should
buy coffee on your first date, if the woman orders a complicated drink then
she's high maintenance and the guy, presumably, can split having only
invested the [over]price of a coffee.
On the Today show the staff related their coffee preferences & they
interviewed some folks at *$$. I couldn't help but wonder what an interview
with somebody on this list would have been like?!
BTW, of the staff the most complicated order was by a guy.

So I guess the "run away from complicated coffee beverages" theory can 
work both ways.  Yay for gender equality!

i've always found it quite amusing when some big macho guy orders a 
"1/2-caf grande 2 pump vanilla nonfat light whip 1/2 a splenda 1/2 a 
sweet-n-low white mocha" to be followed by (presumably) his girlfriend 
w/ "tall black coffee". cracks me up every time.

I've been not-hired for a couple of barista jobs (non-chain locally 
owned joints).  I always make very clear that whatever the customer 
wants the customer gets - money is green and really, my job is to help 
make the owners money but apparently my disdain for fl00fy coffee 
beverages shines through my attempts to disguise it.
Go figure :D

"In 1453 the Turks brought coffee to Istanbul. There the world's first
coffee-shop, Kiva Han, was established in 1475. Turkish law allowed a woman
to divorce her husband if he failed to provide her with her daily quota of
coffee."
 
Guys, choose you life-mate wisely. If she knows this Turkish law you'll be
allowed all kinds of coffee toys to fulfill your daily duties:-)

I believe it is "walk around your spouse three times chanting I divorce 
thee, I divorce thee, I divorce thee". The wife claims I did this years 
ago.
