Friday flash #25: Dayner’s challenge

My friend, Dayner, has laid down another challenge (she’s always doing that)! With her encouragement I’ve written a flash based on a post of mine from yesterday. Here it is…

A young woman, dressed from the ankles up in business attire, waits for her venti white-mocha-no-whip in slippers. She hasn’t had a day off in five years and doesn’t even own a pair of jeans.

The barista calls a drink, but it’s for a gray-haired man in overalls. Her eyes narrow. She feels for the kitchen knife in the pocket of her pink trench and whispers to herself.

That man ordered after me…

    Yikes! With everything going on at Starbucks, I think I’ll get my coffee from the Dunkin Donuts Drive thru.

    Scary thing is – I’ve felt like her from time to time.

      Me, too. Sometimes I get a little more than perturbed that I have to wait for my coffee. I mean, it’s coffee already… I need it! Hurry up already!
