love the simile of the pissed off hornets LOL
a venti non fat latte - I love how it's all a matter of perspective - to you, that simple order is not pretentious like longer, more complicated orders and to me it still sounds bizarre compared to "cup of coffee." LOL
yea sure - yeah
High School - high school
Here ya go, sir - add comma for direct address
I like the self-deprecating humor in your closing :-) Brooke

Jaydub, Well....I must say that this is a lot of fuss about a cup of coffee! However, your story is well written and interesting. I appreciate that coffee is an important part of your life. Smile! Nice job. Carole

This is a cute story. Your writing is very well done, smooth and creamy, not at all tempad, tepid, well lukewarm. It's told in an interesting fashion interesting from beginning to end, and easily relatable. I enjoyed it very much.

You are willing to reconsider and give 'tempad 'her due.that itself says a lot about you.people around us are different and it takes only a little bit of tolerance for us to learn to like each other .it is a good write ,very neede for our times .i hope more people read it.and i love reading about such apparently small incidents .they are slices of life.thank you for sharing.

This was great! You took a simple subject like buying a cup of coffee and turned it into a very enjoyable read. I especially loved the second paragraph where you describe so well the 'claptrap' one has to put up with when buying a simple cup of coffee. Very humorous. This well-written post held my interest throughout and when your 'tempad' coffee finally arrived I could actually smell it. Superb.

This is funny, and I know what you mean. I just might have to write a story about my experience at White Castle. Similar. Your story's inspired me. Lol. Well written and coherent. Enjoyed your mini-rant about pretentiousness. I agree.

You might consider this. Merely a suggestion, of course.

Make the first paragraph into more than one. A little daunting to read such a long one.

Man, she was good and by all accounts really knew her craft. By all examinations it was the perfect cup of coffee.
Would it sound better if you dropped "...by all examinations..." as it is repetitive.

Fun, lighthearted write. (But I like my coffee blazing hot.) Lol.

This is a good descriptive piece with nice elements in it, like the "Caffeine Eden" description (that could be a coffee shop name, you know) and the way the character complains, then morphs into an impatient customer. Nice job.

LOL - this is a well-crafted, amusing story that begs a repeat: same humor, different scenario. I especially liked your description of how you felt when served your latte, in contrast to when your order was taken.

This is really a very good piece with much food for thought. Sometimes we miss judge and get ourselves all in a twit when not necessary. Good piece. God loves you and so do I.

this is very well written, jaydub, you did an excellent job writing this story about the way you like your coffee and the aggravation you felt when the woman mispronounced tepid. i enjoyed reading it. do you know scientists have proven a connection between coffee and the inner ear? that's why you can't talk to some people before they've had their first cup of coffee.
