Stories like this one (link to a Customers_Suck post) make me feel much less guilty about ordering "a large decaf with room for cream, please" at coffee shops.

(I have had people -- not baristas, but random people -- tell me that if all I'm getting is plain decaf, I shouldn't bother going to a coffee shop. Which is all well and good, but if I'm at the bookstore and waiting for Dale, for example, I want to get something to drink while I read the book I bought. And I like the taste of coffee. Others' mileage varies.) (These people are probably related to the woman I posted about several years ago, who gave me grief about ordering meatloaf at a restaurant because it's so easy to make at home. Yes, it is, but when I saw meatloaf on the menu, my tastebuds said "That. Now.".)

Wait, why is it a problem to order food that's easy to make at restaurants? You're *at the restaurant*. It's surprisingly difficult to make meatloaf *at a restaurant* if you are not an employee. And surprisingly tedious and time-consuming to go from the restaurant to a grocery store, buy all the ingredients, go home to your kitchen, make the food, then return to the restaurant so you can eat it.
