You just made a great example of why the Center Camp cafe should be shut down. I brought a little $35 expresso machine with me (98?). I made coffee for folks in the morning for free. No one gave me any shit on what I could serve them. Why? It was pretty obvious that it was a gift- not a purchase. When you bring the outside consumer world into BM, you get outside consumer mannerisms. People that gave me shit would have been given directions on how to properly pound sand up their ass.missmann wrote: i found it interesting that 3 out of five times when i would say hi and ask someone how their day was going they would bark a coffee order at me, and refuse to acknowledge the fact that i was trying to be friendly and interact with them. i found it startling how many people purchasing coffee seemed to think that the majik coffee faeries would instantly have their dry low fat half cappo half mocha with 6 shots of espresso and 2 vanilla flavour shots (like we even had that, read the menu) appear even though we had 14 cups lined up for the barista at our station. i found it disgusting how many people seemed to think that since there was money involved there didn't need to be any manners involved on their part. WE WERE IN THE DESERT AT BURNINGMAN- WHAT THE HELL!!???
It sucks you couldn't tell the 'customers' to make their own fucking latte.
