Fusspots

Saw some fusspots today, in a cafe. The first fusspot said “I’d like an iced latte, please. And can you use milk straight from the fridge?” The barina said “This milk here is cold – I got it out of the fridge a couple of minutes ago. But I’ll be putting ice in it anyway.” The fusspot said “No, it’s at room temperature. Can I have it from the fridge, please?” He got his way. The second fusspot said “A cappuccino, no chocolate, quite wet please.” What was she on about? What’s ‘wet’? The barina handed her a cup topped with white foam. She said “Is it wet?” The barina said “I put extra water in.” The fusspot sipped fussily at the foam for a few seconds. “I can’t taste the coffee,” she said.
The cafe – where exceptionally evolved individuals seek the pamper that defines them.
