A Costa Coffee barista in a busy Sheffield branch of the popular Britsh high street chain was left exhausted last week after serving an influx of customers from London.
The Londoners were in Sheffield for the annual Sheffield Documentary Festival which took place between June 6th and June 12th. Several of them were documentary makers or parts of documentary teams such as camera and recording operators.
“I think they must be fairly green documentary makers, you know? still in college and wet behind the ears because I don’t think they have ever travelled outside London before.” The knackered and frustrated barista – who wishes to remain nameless – told ShizNGiggles.
“They were just being dicks! Asking if this or that drink tasted the same as the ones they bought in that there London. I asked them where they bought their drinks from and when they told me ‘Costa’ … I thought, ‘you’re having a laugh, aren’t you!’ I nearly slapped them.”
The situation grew tense when the barista told several Londoners to ‘get a grip, you poncy southern nancies.’
The manager quickly defused the situation by offering to take over the serving and put the flustered and frustrated barista on the drinks machine for an hour to calm down.
She was overheard muttering to herself “Come up here from that fancy London, asking if the drinks ‘taste the same?’ from the same damn store! Bunch of dicks! F**king Londoners, they make my shit itch!”
Her manager said, “she had a point, once they were served and given their drinks they began supping them followed by nodding heads and a lot of surprised ‘taste same’ comments. What were they expecting? Where did they think they were?”
None of the Londoners were available to comment as they had all returned back to that there London and got snuggle back under their southern security blanket.
