That’s Some Coffee

Most mornings when I get to work one of the first things I do is stop at the little coffee shop thing on the first floor for a 20oz White Chocolate Mocha. Today was not an exception. I usually pay by scanning my id card, which just automatically deducts the amount from my next paycheck.

Today as I was about to scan the card, the woman who makes the coffee put her hand out and stopped me as an alarmed noise came out of her mouth. I looked up. She had rung up my coffee and the amount had come up as $18344.20.

I am glad she stopped me from having that automatically deducted from my pay in exchange for a coffee. That would have been a slightly expensive drink.

She fixed it, I scanned my card, took my coffee and went on my way. And now it is time for work.
