The lengths some people will go to save a buck… This story was cited in a few publications around Seattle yesterday (this version from The Seattle Times): The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Baristas are having a cow over dairy “thefts”. It seems some baristas are up in arms over the covert, money-saving habit of some customers to purchase their iced latte without the milk — and then add milk from the complimentary dairy canisters other customers use to doctor up their coffee.
I’m at least glad to see that this tends to be a habit mainly for iced espresso drinks. Because the thought of customers sneaking in with those battery-powered milk frother wands is enough to make me spew a double-tall, four-pump vanilla caramel macchiato out my nose.
