Interminable Questions and the Invariable Dimensions of Certain Coffees

I don’t like answering a lot of questions.

Like when I go to Starbucks and order a
flat white, and the cashier asks what size
I want, and I say there is only one size of
flat white, pointing at the menu, but the
cashier says, no sir, you can have whatever
size you want, and I say, yes, but any other
size is not a flat white, is it? It’s just some
milk with coffee in it, and the barista is
confused as to why I’m so exercised about
a coffee order.

And so am I.

I am a man of little needs
I like brand 'Meusli Rough'
Amongst the 50 brands in market
Can't find the bloody stuff

Freedom of choice Don market says
Choice 10p to a pound
But you do keep confusing me
By moving stuff around

Sheesh Randy.....

But sir it is variety
Which is the spice of life
Just give me salt and pepper back
Certainly sir. Which brand?.......

Simple Simon Salt?
Silly Salt for Simpletons (stays in shaker....good party salt)
Pathetic Salt for Poets (dull and uninspiring)
Jack and Jill Salt (runs uphill...another party salt)
Salt for Suckers (needs sucking out)
Shit Salt (would not recommend this sir...gutter salt...but we must cater for all types at our market)

Sheesh Randy!...lemme outta here

Freedom of choice Don......
