Statement


A gray-haired painter (house painter) walks into the cafe and orders a coffee. The person at the cash register places a cup of coffee on the counter and says, '$3.50.' Without a word the painter turns and walks out the door, leaving the coffee on the counter.

  2. After so long away, it's nice to come back here where there are quiet moments, the light is clear and bright and there's coffee. Love your words and pictures, Emily (from Coffee and Pie)

    1. It made me step back and think about what I've come to consider "normal".

    1. Both the barista and the person at the cash register were very confused. At first I thought he might have run out to his truck for another dollar or quarter or whatever amount he was short, but this was not the case.

  7. Oh, i like this, especially as someone who has become accustomed to paying outrageous prices for so-so coffee. I might think twice next time.

    1. High price attached to so-so is never a good thing.
