The Customer is Always Right

December 11, 2007
By Katherine Rushing, Monroe, LA

The bird-brained customer in
front of me
thought the term "black" coffee
was racist.

The rolling of eyes,
the glaring stares,
the gossiping whispers
did not stop this arrant fool.
For he kept shouting at the workers
in the local coffee house.

He finally ordered the
white chocolate mocha.
And only minutes later he was
complaining about not enough
"white" chocolate flavor in his
"white" chocolate mocha.
