Advice Advice



A while back I walk into a coffee shop. One thing to note is that it smells like something had been burned and burned bad.

There's a customer sitting at the counter talking to the barista. As she's gathering dishes to deliver to a table, the customer says that she should really carry the dishes in this certain way. The barista says, You're right, I should.

As she returns, he then tells her that she should really carry an extra spoon, and she says, You're right, I should.

Now, I'm thinking about whatever burned and this counter-top job coaching, and that what the barista should really do is tell this guy to stow it, but that would be rude, right?
