I think my favourite was at a trade show in Belfast. Guy walks up to the stand and orders a latte. As I prepared it he turned away and chatted to his mate.
Poured a nice rosetta, put it down in front of him, he looks down at it the up at me asking

"There is milk in that, yeah?"

I took in some coffee to work a couple of years ago for my team. One of them bless him, tried to make a few cups. I found him frantically stirring a few mugs...

"Why won't it dissolve?"

"Mate this is real coffee...."

He even added milk to help it along. Just think, he protects you lot in the UK now.

My Favourite is when your standing behind a LARGE silver shinning 3 group Spaz stacked to the ceiling with coffee cups and a customer walks up looks at the machine then you and asks
"do you make coffee ? " ......... Ummm No this thing is just for decoration!!! :shock:

or "can i have a latte with no milk" ? :evil:
