I am a very, very positive, outgoing and talkative person. Not a lot leaves me absolutely speachless. Well, it happened. I literally did NOT know what to say. I thought it was some kind of joke, but nope. It wasn't.
On Saturday hubby had a business meeting at the Starbucks in Paseo Cancun (local mall - huge). He asked if I wanted to come along, and I of course said I'd love to have a coffee, and I could sit in a corner and read my book.
Now I love Starbucks. If you don't, I don't really care, because I do. I was sooo looking forward to it. I don't order any drink that I can't actually pronounce, in English or in Spanish. All I ask for is a grande coffee in a venti cup. That's it. No biggie...right? WRONG.
How is it possible? I order a coffee and the lady says to me "Sorry, no coffee". So I assume they mean it's not ready. So I ask how long? She says "No, no coffee. We only serve cold beverages". I honestly didn't know what to say?? It's February, the temps haven't been great...It's not the middle of summer in a heat wave? Is she kidding? She's not laughing or smiling. Then it hit me - she was 100% dead serious. With no other explanation. Just told me "We don't serve hot beverages at this location". Starbucks not serving coffee...speachless.
Is it just me? Is it like this all over Mexico? I know it's not like this in other warm climates. When I was in Hawaii last September they served the same cup of coffee as they did back in Canada. I just don't get how "they" got to Starbucks to. By "they" I mean Mexico. I really don't think this happens anywhere else in the world!
Needless to say I still was able to read my book, but sans beverage in hand. I still love Starbucks, and I still love Mexico, but some things I will never, EVER understand.
