STINKIN' LINCOLN STARBUCKS ...!

 

It was a Comedy of Errors this morning at the Starbucks at Lincoln and Montana as dozens of refugees from 7th Street were greeted by "the Cashier from Planet Xanax."  I first knew something was wrong on Monday when it took the Cashier-in-Question several minutes -- and a brief consultation with a colleague -- to calculate the change he owed me.  I had given him exact change.  While some say his elevator doesn't go all the way to the top, local experts have a different theory.  "Maybe he's high," joked Elevator Repairman Jeff.  Personally, I think he's just bored ... and who can blame him?  Nothing exciting seems to happen at Lincoln and Montana.  It was so quiet this morning, I found myself asking Jeff, "So, what's new in the world of Elevator Repair ...?!?"  Evidently, like everything else, it has its ups and downs ...

Maybe the guy is missing home. Longing for Spring Time on Planet Xanax, perhaps?

In his defence i get exactly the same problem sometimes after a particually quiet night at work, my brain goes into sleep mode before i am actually asleep and the simplest of transactions completely baffles me! Beckie.x
