You’re The Twelfth Person In A Row To Order A Medium Latte And Be Named Spartacus! Can This Day Get Any Crazier?!

August 2, 2016

Wow, I can’t believe it. Here I am, just having what I thought was a normal, average day, and then this happens! About five minutes ago a woman comes in and orders a medium latte and when I asked for her name, she said Spartacus! I get it, people are jokesters and think it’s funny to use fake name. But your barista boy Mario can play ball! So I label her cup and move on, chuckling to myself at a stranger’s whimsy. And then, wouldn’t you know it, the same thing happens again! And again and again and again, bringing me to you — the twelfth Spartacus to order a medium latte! Can this day get any crazier?!

 

While you’re waiting, do you mind if I ask — are you guys in some sort of group or something? That seems to be the obvious explanation. You all are playing some sort of silly game together that involves the repetition of a certain behavior. If so, rad! Your boy Mario isn’t going to rain on your parade! I’m all in! Just tell me what I need to do?

That’s cool if me being an employee here sort of nulls my ability to be a part of whatever it is you’re doing. No worries! I’m working anyways and my boss wouldn’t like that, but man would it be a riot if I changed my name tag to Spartacus. The look on his face would be sooo worth the scolding.

 

Sorry, I’ll keep my voice down. I wouldn’t want to ruin your thing — which seems awesome and hilarious — awesarious! Haha. You know, for a group of pals, you sure seem to be pretending like you don’t know each other. Maybe you don’t know each other! My bad, it was so lame to assume that. Please don’t think less of me.

 

If you all are strangers, I gotta say, this would be one of the darned craziest displays of universal probability being played out before my very eyes. I’m sure the odds of getting twelve people with the name Spartacus to order a medium latte in a row have to be straight up outta this world! Here I go again, talking nerd stuff. Stupid Mario!

 

Spartacus! Your order is ready.

 

Oh man, you all are fighting over the same cup of coffee! But you all have the same name! And same order! I get it haha! This is wild.

 

Wait a sec, you’re all leaving? Spartacus? Spartacus? Spartacus? Spartacus? Spartacus? Spartacus? Spartacus? Spartacus? Spartacus? Spartacus? Spartacus? Spartacus? Anyone? Please? I’d really like to hang out with you all and do fun stuff like this. Ugh, I must sound so desperate. Aaand you’re gone.

 

I am so lonely.

 

 

Hi! Can I take your order? :-)
